Despite the effort necessary to keep FCO afloat, Urbay has begun to travel again, serving last year as guest conductor of the Symphony Orchestra of Lima. The Peruvian press praised especially her interpretation of Tchaikovsky's Romeo and Juliet. Urbay decided to re-create the experience as best she could in Miami, bringing Russian-Peruvian violinist Alejandro Eduardovich Ferreira to Coral Gables for a performance of Vivaldi's The Four Seasons. The concert was breathtaking, another instance of Urbay's trademark combination of iron musical discipline and poetic exaltation, an interpretation at once faithful and personal. Unlike Lima, there was echo in the local press. "It's difficult to get established in Miami," Urbay admits, "to open a space for yourself that will allow you to show what you know." But the conductor will never relinquish her baton.
