I spoke to Phillip Ratliff from B-Metro about my recent free outdoor concert at Railroad Park with the Alabama Symphony Orchestra. See here for the full article, or a small excerpt below:
"This easygoing embrace of environment, both the landscape and the people who inhabit it, emerged as an Izcaray trademark during our interview. Izcaray’s taste in music, I quickly learned, is broad, ranging from Stockhausen and Stravinsky to Top 40. The direction his musical career has taken is also broad, to include work on both sides of the podium. Propelling his musical tastes and career arc is an impulse to be curious and experimental. And beneath that, I think, is a profound humility, a willingness to incorporate other opinions, to meet musical styles and audiences on their own terms."
