Press quotes – Der Fliegende Holländer / Große Festspielhaus / October 2010

“Captivating and dramatic.”
Christian Vranek, Erfolgsmagazin, 27.10.10

“Chief conductor Ivor Bolton waves his baton to the whole orchestra pit with much enthusiasm.  Every single note is positioned perfectly throughout the entire two hour performance.  The echoes in particular, which come from the different corners of the hall, provide great operatic effects.”
Ingrid Kreite, Dorfzeitung, 16.10.10

“What Ivor Bolton and the highly motivated Mozarteumorchester create is far away from the typical Wagnerian sound.  Delicate transparency is displayed as much as the exuberant folklore.  Lilting waltzes and dramatic, vital and sensitive emotions are placed next to each other.  The magnificent precision, tension and effective dramatisation take the audience’s breath away.  Bolton similarly understands intricate dynamics and moods and conveys emotional states powerfully.”
