Reviews

"The articulation throughout was astounding, the balance between the different sections really well thought through, the tension overwhelming and the clarity of textures and interplay utterly breathtaking." (Carlos Ernesto Ure, La Prensa, May 2012)

“Vladimir Ashkenazy’s conducting demonstrated that he has lost nothing in terms of energy or steel.

“The Deutsches is a magnificent orchestra… It was sheer pleasure to hear the mahogany, unified colour of the strings, the sweetness of the oboe or the wonderful precision of the solo horn and trumpet... This was virtuoso playing and conducting.” (Buenos Aires Herald, May 2012)

“The Introduction and Allegro appassionato, Op. 92 is a fully fledged mini-concerto which finds Hewitt on sparkling form. She is matched at every turn by Lintu, who draws the finest playing from the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester Berlin." (International Record Review, July 2012)

"The piano enjoys intimate exchanges with the orchestra, the conductor Hannu Lintu bringing out the score’s essential instrumental timbres with the Deutsches Symphonie-Orchester and phrasing them in such a way as to forge a complementary foil to the piano’s discreet world of expression.” (The Telegraph, July 2012)
