Shostakovich and Prokofiev with Beatrice Rana and Seattle Symphony (October 2017)

“Rus Broseta drew from the orchestra an overarching shape and coherence, including in the extended first movement where there are many long solo passages for clarinets, bassoons, flutes–changing from soft to forcefully loud with clashing timpani and snare drum, sometimes feeling portentous, other times ominous.” The Sun Break

Barber,Verdi, Björk… with Renée Fleming and Seattle Symphony (September 2017)

“Soprano Renée Fleming sang everything from Bjōrk to Puccini, while the orchestra’s associate conductor, Pablo Rus Broseta, acquitted himself admirably in Seattle Symphony’s opening-night concert” Seattle Times

Rus Broseta showed a remarkable command of small details that make big differences, as in his calibration of the brass balance in the Verdi […] has a disciplined mind — tempered by his Modernist training — and never settles for the “showy” surface. And he was a sensitive partner with Fleming, allowing her to shine above all in the Barber and Boïto.” Thomas May Memeteria

“the concert was an opportunity for the orchestra’s young associate conductor, Pablo Rus Roseta, to shine, which he did[…] he managed very well to balance the orchestra with Fleming’s voice and nuanced performance. The Verdi overture particularly pulsed with energy, contrasts and forewarnings.” The Sun Break

Rameau, Lully, Bach and Händel with Reginald Mobley and Seattle Symphony ( Feburary 2017)

“Al frente de la SSO, Rus demostró su versatilidad técnica desde el comienzo. El concierto se abrió con la suite de la ópera Naïs, de Jean-Philippe Rameau, que sonó elegante, con prestancia y equilibrio instrumental… Pablo Rus  brindó un acompañamiento inmejorable, sobre el que Mobley sonó sobrio y asertivo”. Operaworld

Shostakovich Concerto Festival with the Seattle Symphony (January 2017)

“…Rus Broseta’s advocacy was focused and often passionate…What was perhaps Boulezian was the expert attention he brought to shaping Shostakovich’s sound world—to his blends of the solo instrument in each case with winds… Also of note was Rus Broseta’s flair for theatricality, shaping climaxes and, even more, bringing out the implications of ensuing anti-climaxes.” Thomas May in Strings Magazine

“Por algunos chispazos de conexión entre Rus y Moreau, creímos contemplar el futuro de la música clásica europea en eclosión.” Carlos Javier López, Operaworld

Seattle Symphony and Yo-Yo Ma (October 2016)

Version 2

 

“From the podium Rus Broseta’s confident partnership ensured a lucid orchestral balance. … It was possible to hear evidence of the young conductor’s experience with new music in the mindful focus on texture and balance. … In his hands the spirited finale of K. 201 was made to sound exhilaratingly fresh, almost proto-Beethovenian. The strings played with superb ensemble.” memeteria by Thomas May

“Seattle Symphony Associate Conductor Pablo Rus Broseta provided tasteful support for Ma’s rendition of the Haydn. The young Spanish-born conductor displayed enormous talent. His baton technique was crisp and clear, and his gestures alternated beautifully between the expressive and the lively.” Erica Miner. Bachtrack.com

“Broseta made a good impression not only as an able and subtle partner in the concerto but in the three orchestral pieces preceding it. Beginning with some nicely characterized Bartok…. Broseta also presented some elegant and nimble Mozart…” Melinda Bargreen, Seattle Times

¨He commanded the SSO´s musicians with aplomb and Mediterranean grace. Rus Broseta’s personality seemed to match Mozart´s young spirit: playful in its simplicity, concise in his rich expression. In the same line, Mozart´s symphony for La finta giardiniera was served with precision and in style.” Operaworld

Galvanisés par le geste du jeune chef valentien Pablo Rus Broseta, les virtuoses de l’EIC donnent à l’œuvre une interprétation fulgurante…On sent un souffle dramaturgique puissant traverser l’œuvre à travers l’interprétation luxueuse du chef et de ses musiciens”ResMusica

 

SWR Sinfonieorchester  (April 2016)

“Pablo Rus Broseta ist ein Dirigent, der eine knappe, aber ausdrucksstarke Gestik und, wo angebracht, konzentrierte Körpersprache einsetzt. Keine Show-Effekte lenken von der Musik ab, deren “Energie” von Rihm so geschätzt wird……subtile Farbmischungen, dynamisch feinste Abstufungen erklingen unter Pablo Rus Brosetas Leitung im Festspielhaus.” Thomas Weiss. badisches-tagblatt

 

Orquesta Sinfónica RTVE (May 2015)

“…una ejemplar interpretación de una obra nada fácil ni familiar, la Sinfonietta de Zemlinsky…”  Pérez de Arteaga, Beckmesser

 

BBC Symphony Orchestra (March 2015)

“The 15 members of the BBC SO under the very able baton of young Spanish conductor Pablo Rus Broseta oozed colour and light, aided by the exotic sounds of guitar, mandolin and celesta. As well as exhibiting the shift in the composer’s stylistic development, Éclat/Multiples also shows up the influence of Boulez’s musical heritage – something he would once have furiously denied. His sonorities and timbres are those of Debussy and Ravel, and the shadows of Schoenberg, Berg and Webern are everywhere”  John-Pierre Joyce; www.musicomh.com

Particularly impressive was Broseta’s use of Boulez’s own hand gestures to articulate the musical paragraphs: the left arm outstretched with the hand pointing directly downwards, switching incisively to an upward position. Concise, unambiguous, and clearly learned from the master himself.”  Gavin Dixon; http://www.theartsdesk.com

 

SWR Sinfonieorchester Baden-Baden und Freiburg (September 2014)

“Both works are great observations of the orchestra and were played in this wonderful concert under the baton of the excellent Spanish conductor Pablo Rus Broseta. Francois-Xavier Roth had entrusted the SWR Symphony Orchestra to his former assistant and the orchestra presented itself as a brilliant advocate of the most audacious premieres” Jean-Guillaume Lebrun; www.concertclassic.com
