Concert reviews: 27 September 2017

On Wednesday 27 September we were joined by Jan Vogler for a performance of Britten's Cello Symphony, the UK premiere of Valentin Silvestrov's Symphony No. 3, and Janáček's Taras Bulba, led by LPO Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski.

★★★★☆ ‘Throughout a typically searching and innovative programme, Jurowski's keen sense of balance, timbre, rhythmic precision and dramatic shape within complex scores was met with technical assurance and colour from the orchestra.’ John Johnston, bachtrack.com, 28 September 2017

★★★★☆ ‘This superbly played premiere of Valentin Silvestrov’s Third Symphony revealed a masterpiece’ Richard Morrison, The Times, 29 September 2017

‘Jurowski and the LPO delivered [Silvestrov's Symphony No. 3] with the greatest conviction ... and, no strangers to Janáček’s theatricality, didn’t hold back [in Taras Bulba]’ Peter Reed, classicalsource.com, 28 September 2017
