Conductors

When venerable guest conductor Rafael Frühbeck de Burgos took ill... the orchestra called upon its assistant conductor, Ankush Kumar Bahl, to lead the final performance on Saturday. No one hearing the concert cold would have had any reason to think that Bahl had not been leading the orchestra all week... the orchestra responded with a solid performance (and) the audience gave him a standing ovation at the close. —Robert Battey, The Washington Post, March 2014

-The National Symphony Orchestra shone under its assistant conductor, Ankush Kumar Bahl, whose crisp tempi and authority left one wanting to hear more of him... -Bahl drew a lush sound from the orchestra, particularly the strings… and brought the work to a towering climax.” —Anne Midgette, The Washington Post, and Patrick D. McCoy, Washington Life Magazine, November 2012
