San Diego Opera
Kenneth Montgomery exacts phenomenally stylish playing from the local orchestra.
David Gregson, San Diego Magazine, 02/02
Conductor Kenneth Montgomery brings the San Diego Opera orchestra to new heights in more ways than one. Their playing, accompanied by not one but two harpsichords, is particularly nuanced and in sync. And the orchestra itself has been lifted up several feet on risers, giving the singers, conductors and musicians better communication, and the audience a cleaner, less-muffled sound.
