After the intermission, the sound which is now that of the Marseille Philharmonic Orchestra would do wonders for Manuel De Falla's Le Tricorne. Colors, warmth: nothing was missing from this lively interpretation. It must be said that Néstor Bayona is Spanish and that this music speaks to his heart and to his ears. He knew how to take advantage of silky strings, luminous woods, radiant brass and a piano, to lead this journey beyond the Pyrenees; a journey in which the voice marked with the seal of flamenco by mezzo Marina Rodriguez-Cusi took part. The Marseille orchestra excels in this repertoire and it is with good reason that this interpretation was greeted with passion by a full house. By Michel Egea

A great evening of music at the Grand Théâtre de Provence in Aix this Tuesday, January 21, 2020, the pianist David Fray was accompanied by the Orchester Philharmonique de Marseille, conducted by Néstor Bayona in a bright program! ... The strings sing wonderfully, the winds deliver a clear, dazzling sound. Yes, the Iberian character of this work is delicately colored under the direction of Nestor Bayona. By Pétra Wauters
