Piotr Gajewski and Zuill Bailey performed with the South Florida Orchestra. Check out the highlights of the review:

"...the entire orchestra played with an extra degree of precision, in part due to Mr. Gajewski’s crisp conducting; this was a considerable accomplishment..."

"The substitution of Mr. Gajewski worked out extremely well. He got from his players just about all the emotional power that 65 musicians can produce..."

"In the Prokofiev, his conducting was consistently sensitive to Mr. Bailey’s playing"

"At the end of the concert, the audience gave him and his players a standing ovation, calling him back three times and would have done it again if he’d let them."
