"Teatro Grattacielo, devoted to concert productions of Italian operatic rarities, delivered in a warm, fragrant bath of a performance on Tuesday at the N.Y.U. Skirball Center for the Performing Arts. The music had lush charm in the Grattacielo orchestra's... committed performance, conducted with energy by Israel Gursky."
Zachary Wolfe
The New York Times,The New York Times,
"The musical performance was more energetic than dazzling, but it had undeniable integrity. Firm, judicious guidance came from Manhattan School of Music alumnus Israel Gursky, who has been conducting at Washington National Opera since 2007. He found a viable balance between detail and pacing. The tightly controlled ensembles did not culminate in a virtuoso blaze of speed or push too obviously for dramatic depth but followed a more modest dynamic. Each of the acts worked to a convincing conclusion in calibrated steps. As in any worthy Così, the emotional high points came in the crucial Act II love duets of both couples - "Il core vi dono" and especially the soprano-tenor "Fra gli amplessi" - which were performed with affecting lyricism."
