Concert Reviews: 30 April 2016

In our final performance in our 2015/16 London season, Saturday 30 April, our Principal Conductor and Artistic Advisor Vladimir Jurowski led the Orchestra in a performance of Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 4 and R Strauss’s An Alpine Symphony.

Read the reviews here:

‘The essence of this rapport between the LPO and Jurowski was best displayed when Strauss is at his subtlest’.
‘In this the LPO’s final concert of the 2015-16 season (Glyndebourne beckons), Jurowski’s was a carefully considered interpretation of great conviction’.
Antony Hodgson, Classical Source, 1 May 2016

‘What we got was something different: a perfect blending of rich textures, and objectivity that left humans more or less out of the natural landscapes, and an often swift expedition that gave space to climaxes’.
‘Jurowski’s perfect tempo made it work for the first time in my experience’.
David Nice, The Arts Desk, 2 May 2016
