Reviews

On this evidence the Shanghai ers are a bright and bushy-tailed orchestra. Their evident commitment and growing sense of style in another cultureís music are heightened by some evidently distinguished orchestral principals who catch the ear here, especially the first flute and bassoon. ... this new reading [of Rachmaninovís Second Concerto] is no splash-and-dash exhibition but rather (despite the wide-open space of the venue) a considered, large-scale chamber reading of subtle colours. The video director gives the pianist a lot of attention, viewing much of the performance from a kind of squat by his keyboard, catching Trifonovís clear judgements on his own work in his facial expressions. Carmina Burana: donít be put off by its seeming laid-backness. This aspect of Yuís interpretation serves to heighten the folk aspects of the work, too often submerged in a kind of aggressive concert-hall banter. Soloists and choir (both Vienna imports and Shanghai children) are uniformly excellent, Tťzier especially being subtle, hypnotic and genuinely witty as opposed to crude buffoMike Ashman
