The triumphant return of Gisèle Ben-Dor

Benjamin Bar-Am

... Ben-Dor, who has now made a name for herself internationally and whom we have not heard conducting for a very long time, emerged with flying colors from this program of Bartok's Dance Suite, Grieg's Piano Concert and Dvorak's Eighth Symphony. She has the ability to interpret convincingly, and to convey the most accurate and clear instructions to the orchestra.

... both emerged as tightly knit logically developing pieces. The accuracy with which orchestral parts come together and merge under Ben-Dor is remarkable. Ben-Dor combines, in her conducting movements, both the beat and the musical phrase, thus fusing the technical and the musical dimension in a most impressive way.

... The concert was enhanced by Gisèle Ben-Dor's meticulous accompaniment.
