    • "Araya proved to be a young expert who kept the threads of the musical fabric in his hands in a relaxed manner, but let the musicians do most of the work. It seemed more like the conducting of a wise old master than that of a 27-year-old substitute."

    • "Luis Toro Araya (27) from Chile opened the second half with a second reading of Mahler 4. He immediately found the many different colours so vital to any successful interpretation of this work. Changes in speed worked well and made perfect musical sense. A thread was spun. Silky and seductive sounds from the violins led us to a stillness, a calmness, in complete contrast to the previous madness. The horns had great fun with their turns as did the whole orchestra. Araya found the swirling rise and fall, and the searing clarinets and oboes were jubilant. The orchestra was unleashed. This was a polished and assured interpretation with a real sense of emotional depth, stillness, peace and calm. The whole auditorium was in the palm of his hands, hanging on every beat."
