|"This orchestra is ... beyond brilliant"|
Just one of the reviews of our recent concerts. Here are some more: -
- The orchestra was superb, the conductor showed such sensitivity to all pieces and created a dynamic, and very musical journey for the audience to share - the soloist was quite breathtaking with the slow movement being one of the most affecting interpretations I have heard. An incredible achievement for all concerned & ultimately professional and memorable.
- A stunning concert of sheer brilliance. The orchestra has been raised to the next level. Huge congratulations to everyone.
- A really uplifting evening. So much energy and beautiful music. Thank you.
- The orchestra sounded incredible last night - very moving. The strings in the 3rd mvt of the Mahler were exquisite and Rob did a brilliant job. Everyone should feel very proud.
- Great orchestra and really enthusiastic pre-concert talk.
- Even though Bizet and Berlioz are not really my cup of tea, I absolutely loved the Ravel and still thought that it was an excellent evening.
- You get used to a great programme well performed with the Metropolitan, this was fabulous even by their high standards.
- Fantastique was simply fantastic. I so wish I had been taken to experience it as a child; I would have fallen in love with classical music immediately.
