Maestra Miller's conducting was crisp as the Autumn air, exceedingly energetic, and confidently capable....Miller and the orchestra were impressively engaged in the distinctively difficult score.... Read More...

'Musically fascinating with a hypnotic baton technique, Rebecca Miller is a major talent. With enormous energy Miller vitalizes the thirst for freedom that Beethoven pours into his magnificent 'Eroica' Symphony...elegant without being overly refined, her reading is triumphant. Miller's revelatory interpretations, her ability to lead with warmth and conviction, and the Reno Philharmonic's high level of achievement under her direction make these two Rebecca Miller concerts very special events.'

With Rebecca Miller at the podium, the performance [of Messiah] revealed a taut, emotionally charged masterpiece. It brought repeated cheers from a packed house and showed why Miller, at age 31, already has earned international prizes and critical raves for her work in London and Houston. Miller's careful control of dynamics and phrasing let one hear every word of the text and the chorus, closely reined by Miller, never mumbled in complex contrapuntal passages, never swamped things in the thunderous climaxes.'

March slave oozed sadness and bristled with brassy energy. The Classical Symphony brimmed with puckish humor. The Firebird Suite shocked with its slam-bang drum bursts and seduced with the sumptuous, glittering finale. Read More...

[Miller's] conducting was crisp and orderly. She and the orchestra communciated well; the musicians played with a sit up-and-concentrate spirit not always evident in American orchestras.

Possessed of a clear, communicative conducting style, [Miller] has the ability essential to any real conductor to engage an orchestra's attention and get its members to play with precision and fire....

Best of all was the airborne Schubert that positively fizzed with youthful energy with speeds again fleet in the outer movements if cannily sturdy in the Minuet, which for once was a real Austrian dance... A very revealing performance overall.

'Imaginative programming and inspirational performances.'

'Under the astute and sensitive direction of conductor Rebecca Miller, this vividly detailed work [Strauss's Metamorphosen], with its velvety, swirling textures, was mesmerising.'
