Maestro Payare, a youthful Venezuelan horn player himself, conducted with wisdom and patience. The oversized orchestra at several climactic moments produced tremendous waves of sound followed by sudden silence. Payare held both audience and orchestra at bay until all the reverberations decayed beyond perception, which took longer than I ever remember at Powell —turning (as predicted) the orchestra into an organ and Powell Hall into a cathedral.
