The Jerusalem PostMeeting Simon Casali-Krzentowski off-stage is like being introduced to a completely different person. The young conductor who explodes, rebels and frantically inspires his musicians during performances, becomes a gentle, almost shy person when he no longer wears his concert dress. Sunday the 17th of February, he will perform with his Hafnia Chamber Orchestra at the Jerusalem Theatre, presenting works of, amongst others, Ben-Haim, Donizetti and Tchaikovsky in a concert where the Old World meets the New World.
