OSLO PHILHARMONIC
Bull/Halvorsen: La melancolie
Rachmaninoff: Paganini-Rhapsody
Nordheim: Epitaffio
Shostakovich: Symphony No. 5

“Torsdagens konsert i Filharmonien var Mäkeläs første fulle program med
orkesteret. Det ble en oppvisning i engasjert samspill, der summen ble verdt
så mye mer enn de enkelte delene. Orkesteret er på hugget. De svarer når
Mäkelä ber om intensitet, om drama, om mystikk og glede.”

“Mäkelä’s first full program with the orchestra was a lesson in great ensemble playing, where the sum was greater than the parts. The orchestra was on the edge of its seat. They responded when Mäkelä asked for intensity, drama, mystery and joy. The challenging Shostakovich symphony was obviously a feast for them to play, and one could hear that.”
