Jorge Federico Osorio Plays Chávez Piano Concerto, Carlos Miguel Prieto Conducting

"The Frankfurt public welcomed this colorfully rich work [Copland El Salón México] with the utmost appreciation. With Shostakovich Symphony No. 6, the second part of the concert illustrated Prieto's mastery... even in the greatest climaxes of sound, he draws clear lines, extracts structures and controls dynamics brilliantly."
Rhein-Main-Zeitung (Frankfurt Radio Symphony)
Mexican conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto...offered the cellist [Yo-Yo Ma] strong and flexible support. ...The Lalo [Cello Concerto in d] was the middle course of Prieto's promising debut. ...After intermission came Rachmaninoff's Symphonic Dances.... ...Prieto guided the orchestra with a steady sense of its winding architecture, and brought it to an exciting close."
The Boston Globe (Boston Symphony Orchestra)
"Prieto took over the podium with confidence, shaping rhythmically pointed and gorgeously colored interpretation of two ballet classics: the second suite from Manuel de Falla's The Three-Cornered Hat, from 1919, and Igor Stravinsky's 1947 revision of his 1911 work, Petrouchka..."

In a season that has already delivered impressive moments, the Kansas City Symphony’s reading of Prokofiev’s “Romeo and Juliet” on Friday may well be the highlight. With the leadership of guest conductor Carlos Miguel Prieto, the musicians had fire in their bellies, playing with concerted aggression that overawed the audience. A subdued crowd left Helzberg Hall, still a bit taken aback by not only the power displayed in the performance but the breathless sustain and decay of the end, indicating Juliet’s death."

"I was in Helzberg Hall the Friday after Thanksgiving in 2011 when the Kansas City Symphony gave a stunning account of Dmitri Shostakovich’s Symphony No. 10.

At the time, I was unfamiliar with the guest conductor, Carlos Miguel Prieto, but I remember hoping he would return.

Luckily for me and everyone else who was blown away by that memorable concert, Prieto will soon conduct the Kansas City Symphony featuring music by Silvestre Revueltas, Joaquin Rodrigo and Sergei Prokofiev."

"El concierto inaugural de la 30 edición del Festival del Centro Histórico de México resultó una grata sorpresa para el público asistente al Palacio de Bellas Artes, por la interpretación del pianista Alexander Toradze y la Orquesta Sinfónica Nacional, bajo la batuta de Carlos Miguel Prieto."
