RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra, Dublin National Concert Hall

“The RTÉ NSO [is] having a blinder of a season, judging from its regular sold-out Friday night concerts and the quality of the musicianship on offer – particularly under its new principal guest conductor, Nathalie Stutzmann. And tonight’s concert was a prime example of that – a sumptuous programme, an exciting soloist, and an orchestra that was utterly sensitive to Stutzmann’s masterful conception of the music.”
“Stutzmann is a master at building up the excitement (…). [She] grasped us by the lapels with her interpretation of this great work [Beethoven’s Symphony no. 5]”
