Orchestre de Paris on tour

“Klaus Mäkelä presented Stravinsky’s musical fairy tale (The Firebird) as a largely lyrical play of tonal colours, finally firing up the finale with razor-sharp, controlled discharges of power.”

Der Standard, Christoph Irrgeher, 20 November 2023

“Great sensitivity, deep sensuality and dazzling beauty of sound were also the advantages of Maurice Ravel’s “Shéhérazade” at the beginning. And Igor Stravinsky’s “L’oiseau de feu” was “told” with colorful sophistication and rich, sometimes extremely sharp contrasts and great tension.”

Kurier, Helmut Christian Mayer, 19 November 2023
