“The orchestra’s superbly polished performance never faltered. Right from the work’s famous opening theme, I heard an incredibly articulate orchestral sound. Each section ably contributed to the nearly flawless communal sound, and the overall interpretation was once again confident, nuanced and meticulous.
Music director Thierry Fischer led the orchestra with a clear, confident command of each score, as well as with economical gestures. Now that the conductor and orchestra are in their third season together, they are starting to operate together at peak effectiveness. The evidence is right there in the sound. To this reviewer, the orchestra has never sounded so confident, so articulate and so precise.
Friday’s concert in Abravanel Hall was simply world class.”
