Watching Pescasseroli perform is mesmerizing as there is a definite and visible connectivity between he and the orchestra members with glances, smiles, little nuances that flow from his hand and the baton. Each direction is vivid and creates powerful symbiotic imagery, thus, making his genius abundantly apparent. His timing is impeccable, a thing of beauty, as is the obvious instantaneous response to his direction. If it’s an allegro piece, he hops, sways, and thrusts to the symphonic sounds of his orchestra with his face alive with emotion. Is it no wonder that as a very young man, he and his orchestra won the hearts of Europeans. They went on to perform over 300 concerts receiving critical acclaim from royalty and heads of state from around the world.
