Concert reviews: Jurowski conducts Racmaninoff 8 December

Alina Ibragimova joined us last week for a performance of Shostakovich’s Violin Concerto No.1, conducted by Vladimir Jurowski; his first concert with us in his new role as Conductor Emeritus. The reviews are in and safe to say, it went down a treat…

This was a performance of exquisite detail, not vulgar as the symphony can be, and the LPO responded with its finest playing”

★★★★ from Financial Times

“Superb playing, especially, from principal violas, low woodwind, trombones, percussion – OK let’s say everyone”

★★★★ from The Observer

 

"Magnificently played and totally cogent account...with the London Philharmonic providing razor-sharp accompaniment under Vladimir Jurowski's superb direction"

★★★★ from The Times

 

“Vladimir Jurowski’s programmes with the LPO are always thoughfully curated, well prepared and entertaining. Returning as the orchestra’s new Conductor Emeritus, this concert was no exception”

★★★★ from Bachtrack

“The LPO in virtuoso form”
