The brightness of Osesp in the hands of Nathalie Stutzmann
Concerto | Camila Frésca
Yesterday (…) became even more evident the work she is developing with the orchestra. The Osesp played wonderfully well, since the first bars of the opening of Le Roi d’Ys by Edouard Lalo (…). It prepared the climate for the second piece in the evening, the popular Piano Concerto by Schumann. Besides the quality of the orchestra conducted by Stutzmann, the audience was electrified by solos of pianist Khatia Buniatishvili, which in addition to precision and technical mastery demonstrated a range of tone and interpretive richness. (…) It was supposed to be the climax of the night and follow up in the second part, a light and warm end with the Symphony No. 1 by Bizet. But the work in the hands of Stutzmann was far beyond that. With great musical intelligence, she emphasized the classic character of the first movement and the profound lyricism of the second, in addition to revealing the operatic echoes of the author of Carmen in the final movement of the symphony.
