Perhaps the most memorable work Thursday evening, however, was conductor Michael Rossi's lovingly sculpted phrasing of Mozart's astonishing orchestration.

Rossi turned out to be an exceptional Wagner conductor, someone who seems to have an intuitive understanding for this music’s ebb and flow.

Miami Wagner Institute Review
Michael Rossi led the MMF orchestra in a superb, well-paced reading that was sensitive to the singers’ voices. The playing by the orchestra was virtually flawless and conveyed both the light playfulness of Mozart’s melodies and the ominous nature of the darker-hued passages.
