"I was given the mandate to turn the OSESP into an international quality orchestra, one of a kind which had never before existed in Brazil's history," Neschling recalls of how then state governor Mario Covas enlisted him to take over the orchestra and the promise of the state's cultural secretariat to underwrite the expensive undertaking.
Conductor Eleazar de Carvalho led the OSESP from 1972 to his death in 1996.
