"At the conclusion, Patel also was called back repeatedly and, in a lovely touch of humility not often seen by conductors, indicated that the bountiful applause belonged to the instrumentalists. Wow!– a conductor who treats the players like the partners they really are. In reply, the orchestra gave their guest conductor its own brand of applause. You don't see that so often in concerts."
"Patel gave the work a vibrant dynamic breath that ranged from the startlingly quiet and emotional, to the bombastic and overwhelmingly forceful. While the performance was filled with details-both subtle and bold-that came as a surprise in an already surprising work, it was Patel's broad narrative continuity throughout that made the performance so compelling. Given Maestro Patel’s personal warmth and apparent genuineness, and the intelligent interpretations of the weekend’s performance, I wouldn’t be surprised if we hear more from him in the future."
