REVIEWS: Performances with the New York Philharmonic

amerrick / 2nd April 2017 / News

“The orchestra played with an exceptionally warm sound and blend, with individual voices and statements floating above the textures. Gilbert’s attention to phrasing and form added an elegance to the middle two movements. The trio in the scherzo and the cantabile section of the slow movement took notable shape and emphasis by emerging out of the cornucopia of ideas and reveries in the music.”

“…there were many moments of magic, especially in the last two movements, welcome reminders of the orchestra’s considerable form with this music.”

“The third movement of Music for Strings, Percussion and Celesta was a revelation, conjuring up an image of walking through a graveyard at night as the skeletons below ground spring to life, before dying away again into nothingness.”
