“I’m thrilled to introduce our audiences to my dear friend, pianist Aldo López-Gavilán. Aldo is not only a consummate musical artist with an astounding technique; he is also one of the most exuberant musical collaborators I know. When he’s onstage, his sheer delight in performing and childlike generosity of spirit remind me of Yo-Yo Ma. It’s a wonder to behold, a gift to our musicians, and a joy to have on our stage.” – Scott Speck, Music Director
