Gianandrea Noseda dirigiert den «Feurigen Engel» am Opernhaus Zürich

«Ein Glücksfall für die Zürcher Produktion ist der Dirigent Gianandrea Noseda. (…) Der Dirigent lässt die bruitistischen Seiten der Partitur ungeglättet ausbrechen. Dabei nimmt er in Kauf, dass die Philharmonia Zürich die Sänger an extremen Stellen überdeckt. Deutlich bringt der Dirigent damit den sinfonischen Charakter des Werks zur Geltung, der im „Feurigen Engel“ viel stärker ausgeprägt ist als in den anderen Opern Prokofjews. Im Kontrast wirken die Inseln des Melodischen umso stärker.» Neue Zürcher Zeitung, Thomas Schacher «Rarely have a ...

Daniele Rustioni conducts the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra

«Daniele Rustioni was in charge for the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra’s latest trip from Poole to its second home. What an enthusiastic chap. The 34-year-old Italian bounces and dances, flicks his shock of hair and gestures flamboyantly (…) Rustioni inspired some brilliant playing from the orchestra: the demonic trumpet soaring, the strings luminous in an unfussy reading of the Adagietto. And the thrilling finish drew immediate roars of approval from the audience.» The Times, Rebecca Franks

«De nouveau réunis un peu plus d'un an après un concert déjà exceptionnel, les deux géants Noseda et Chamayou, sous la gouverne des Grands Interprêtes, se retrouvaient sur les planches de la Halle, avec cette fois l'Orchestre de Turin. (…) Dès le second mouvement, plus tellurique, Noseda se met à rugir sur les accords les plus marqués et ne s’arrêtera plus jusqu’à la fin du concert. Le maestro et son orchestre concluent par une très, très Grande porte de Kiev, qui n'a rien à envier aux enregistrements de l'ONCT. En artisan, Noseda taille dans la pierre ...

Daniele Rustioni makes his debut at the MET conducting AIDA

«Daniele Rustioni made his first appearance in the Met’s pit on Thursday... it was a promising debut as he showed strong dramatic sense, fitting the score to the demands of each scene, and managed the tricky ballet of the triumph scene with exemplary precision.» New York Classical Review, Eric Simpson «In a sleepy performance, sometimes the best moment is a getting-better moment. The tenor Jorge de León, making his Metropolitan Opera debut, started off with a brusque “Celeste Aida,” but relaxed enough by the second-act triumphal scene to show off a healthy ...
