The "excellent" Yankovskaya leads Island City Opera’s Rimsky-Korsakov Double-Bill
"The latter, by the way, was the conductor for both Rimsky-Korsakov operas. She comes to the Bay Area from the Chicago Opera Theatre, where she is Music Director. In Ms. Yankovskaya’s hands, the small Island City Opera Orchestra of some two dozen members gave a richly robust rendition of Rimsky-Korsakov’s music." -The Berkeley Daily Planet Read full review.
"Both productions featured excellent conducting by guest conductor Lidiya Yankovskaya. . . The chamber orchestra, seated cheek-by-jowl with the audience, played with utter confidence even in the demanding chromaticism of Rimsky-Korsakov’s storm scenes"
