¡Música, maestra!”: Lucía Zicos in concert tomorrow at the CCK.

“With a program made up of works by contemporary composers, the conductor sought to balance musical genres.

Doctor in music and faculty at the UCA, Zicos, despite her youth, already has a solid national and international career. In England she conducted Tchaikovsky’s “Eugene Onegin” and Mozart’s “Le nozze di Figaro” at the head of the Dartington Festival Orchestra. At the Opera in Sofia, Bulgaria, she performed “La Bohème” by Puccini, “Così fan tutte” by Mozart and “Aida” by Verdi.

Locally, she conducted a dozen titles at the San Juan Opera, and in 2010 she performed  “Loreley”, by Catalani, at the Avenida Theater, with the well-remembered soprano Adelaida Negri, and at the Teatro Colón she participated in the Cycle of Argentine Interpreters. She performed the musical direction of the album “Ausencias”, winner of a 2014 Latin Grammy, and of the album “Mágica y Misteriosa”, which was Best Classical Music Album at the Latin Grammy 2018, both with music by the Argentine composer Claudia Montero.”

“The conductor was the talented Lucía Zicos and the producer was Damian Mahler, who included a short piece directed by himself: Remembranza, with a pleasant melody. I was a little surprised by the choice of Tchaikovsky’s First Concert, because this is a famous “standard” that highlights virtuosity and not depth, but Antonio Formaro was not superficial at all: fulfilling all the mechanical demands, he gave meaning and reflection to what is usually only a vehicle for the exhibition. In this and other ways, Zicos and the orchestra, an efficient ensemble, accompanied very well.”

Precisely if there was a salient edge on this evening it was the growth of Zicos as performer. She guided with intelligence, with full gestural expressiveness and she obtained responses from the group at formidable moments. Her understanding with all the soloists participating in the programming was total and all the versions had full balance. […] Zicos managed to take expressiveness to the maximum, making the Orchestra completely free and look comfortable throughout the entire work. She has achieved extraordinary acting growth and hopefully we can see her directing more often. She certainly deserves it.
