»… With Thomas Rösner on the podium of the Philharmonia Zürich the orchestra was in fine form, and conductor and orchestra together were justly acclaimed by the audience.  Above all the rich, calmly intoned introduction to the quartet “Mir ist so wunderbar” remains in one’s mind, along with the way the motives of the overture were carved out with extreme precision – with both the dancelike and dramatic elements brought magnificently to the fore. Overall it was a performance characterised by a thrilling intensity that one wished could have begun from the start all over again!«

»The evening’s main feature is the conducting of Thomas Rösner. In his hands the music lilts and sparkles, and the orchestra dances birilliantly to his tune.«

»Humperdinck’s music is extremely well conducted by Thomas Rösner. I can’t remember hearing the score’s creepy bits made to sound so anguished and Mahlerian.«

»Stravinsky’s firebird was played by an orchestra and conductor of superlatives. Well-rounded and with a full sound, a broad spectrum of colours and full of poetry, its transitions and its structure were moulded by a master’s hand: Thomas Rösner is admirable in his inspired direction, conveying his wishes to the orchestra with incredible effectiveness – it was pure enjoyment! Nothing is left to chance, and the result is overwhelming …  Rösner’s absolute fidelity to the score and its spirit is thrilling, almost magical. This performance had everything: an airy lightness, an abundance of energy and yet a delicate fragility. You couldn’t imagine the finale being performed more beautifully!«

Thomas Rösner is the artistic director of the Beethoven Philharmonie. >>
