“Conductor David Afkham made everything look easy in his Severance Music Center debut with Cleveland Orchestra on Friday night. He committed to lead works by Unsuk Chin, Rachmaninoff and Bartók in March when Lahav Shani asked to be away for the birth of his first child.

That program would be a heavy lift for any conductor, but the Orchestra responded to Afkham’s remarkable assurance and clarity and delivered some of the most exhilarating performances of the season to date.”
