We’ve been thrilled with the positive feedback on these concerts:
The 4* Times review praised "a performance of dancing colours, crisp beauty and punch… Petrenko’s forces played with heart, soul and all the other necessaries in a performance strong enough to overwhelm even a home listener alone with a laptop."
The Guardian remarked on the concert’s “maximum impact for a bold start to virtual season”
“Brilliant concert. Excellent programme. Great to have Stephen Johnson involved. Top class performance. More please ! Bravo !
“The sound quality was excellent and the programme was excellent.”
“This was so beautiful it made me cry”
