 "Rocha conducted the orchestra with elegance and great authority in the interpretation of the Symphony No.3, Scottisch, by German composer Felix Mendelssohn"

 

- Concerto Magazine - 

 

His piece was perfect. It seemed like Mozart himself had written it, so good it was (...) and that was already some sort of certificate that he was graduated in what concerned the classical standard repertoire."
 

- Gilberto Mendes (1922-2016) -
