“Indeed it’s hard to fault any aspect of the orchestra’s performance…
The one thing that was abundantly evident throughout this concert was the good rapport that existed between the conductor and the players…”

June 2017 – Orfeo CD – Irish Times

The Irish Chamber Orchestra

Mojca Erdmann

Jörg Widmann Conductor/Clarinet

 

“A lith, disciplined performance of Mendelssohn’s Reformation Symphony, played on modern instruments with the lean-toned sensitivities of period instrument players, is followed by a shape-changing orchestration/re-writing of the Andante from Mendelssohn’s early Clarinet Sonata. Classy musical time-travelling.”

“The Irish Chamber Orchestra under David Brophy played with terrific verve and élan in support of the seven strong cast all who seem very comfortable in their roles”.

“This collaboration with the renowned Irish Chamber Orchestra was received with great enthusiasm in Limerick…”

“Brophy and the ICO were crisp and double-dotted from the start, not as frantic as is the current Brito-Hibernian fashion, but fully in tune with the pathos and particular colouring of this piece; I’d not heard Brophy conduct Handel before but this was gorgeously and sensitively phrased, sparkling and fiery where required (and with some excellently jagged lightning-bolts and fireworks in the cascading da capos) but giving and tender at those places where Handel holds out a comforting hand to his suffering characters in the form of a cello or oboe to guide them through their grieving”.

      Jörg Widmann, Principal Guest Conductor/Clarinet
       

      “Framing Widmann’s own pieces were high-octane, edge-of-seat performances of Mozart and Mendelssohn.”
