Laszlo Marosi – With KMEA All-State Orchestra

At very short notice Laszlo Marosi was called to stand in for an ill conductor, rehearsing and directing a demanding program in Louisville KY to widespread acclaim. Renowned California conductor Larry Livingstone contacted Marosi on Monday February 4th to say he had suddenly taken ill. On Wednesday Marosi was on a flight to Kentucky and on his arrival, straight into rehearsals with the KMEA All-State Orchestra. On Saturday, February 9th Marosi guided the orchestra through a program containing Verdi’s Overture to ‘Nabucco’ and Shostakovich’s Symphony no.5, earning a prolonged standing ovation.
