Reviews for Brittens “Billy Budd” in Madrid!

"But after all, get link Bolton had in general handled the narrative with an intuition worthy of the most sensitive interpreter of Brittens masterpiece. "(atorod.pl, 21.2.2017)   " follow site Ivor Bolton gave his best performance so far as chief conductor of the Teatro Real. The musical discourse flowed with clarity and the strings played masterfully with the different densities of the score, although one could have asked for a more passionate approach. The bony violence of Britten's brass and wind sections was softened by a preference for equilibrium which may also be interpreted as risk aversion." (www.bachtrack.com, 6.2.2017)   "There was impressive musical rhetoric emanating from the pit...

Reviews for Netherlands Opera ‘Armide’

"Every moment of Armide has glorious music, fresh, direct, lively and moving. Ivor Bolton keeps the superb Nederlands Kamerorkest brisk, yet gives the phrases time to breathe and grow... the singing is excellent, from Henk Neven’s thrilling Ubalde and Sébastien Droy’s wholesome Artémidore to Karin Strobos and Ana Quintans as the honey-voiced Phénice and Sidonie. The whole is a musical treat..." - Financial Times "Dans la fosse, le Nederlands Kamerorkest est dirigé avec beaucoup d’amour et de compétence par Ivor Bolton, et ses instruments modernes ont assez de compétence de l’esthétique baroque pour proposer un compromis esthétique parfaitement acceptable." -...

Das beudeutet: brillante Spielweisen, denen die Streicher des Salzburger Orchesters mit wendiger Leichtigkeit gerecht wurden, feine Balancen und eine reichhaltige Skala an Bläserbravour..." - Salzburger Nachrichten (We were rewarded with an abundance of colourful impressions.

Glowing reviews for ‘Alceste’ in Vienna

"Gens is compelling in the title role: intelligent, passionate and husbanding her vocal resources well. Kaiser is her decorative, despairing spouse... both are refined, moving and intense.  The Gustav Mahler choir sings well, the smaller roles are well-cast, and Ivor Bolton keeps the pace taut and the drama high... Under Bolton, the Freiburger Barockorchester makes this music sound as if the ink were still wet on the page." - Financial Times   "Joseph Kaiser singt als Admète ansehnlich, Véronique Gens erbringt als Alceste eine tolle Kraftleistung mit kleinen Schwankungen, Adam Plachetka ist als Hercule tadellos, und Clemens Unterreiner wirkt als Oberpriester kraftvoll....
