From the moment the curtain rises and the overture to Verdi's I Vespri Siciliani begins, Evelino Pidò's direction is characterized by expert workmanship in the precision of his intentions: his gestures instruct, his hands sculpt and the whole body supports and encourages the reactions of an orchestra which responds to the subtlest of his signals…

Olyrix, June 2023

The musicians of the Sächsische Staatskapelle spread an excellent tapestry of sound, confidently led by the judicious and dynamic conducting of the Italian Evelino Pidò. Depending on the need, Pidò had the orchestra play at full speed or even virtuosically. The balance between the pit and the stage was right, so that the singers had enough space in every phase
