Andris Nelsons is a regular conductor with many of the world’s top orchestras.

“every gesture and expression dovetails with what we hear. Subtle yet soaring, these orchestral performances are shaped by a conductor who enjoys every second of his job, and equally enjoys the musicians before him - the superb Concertgebouw players, peerless in technical finesse and the elegant colouring of phrase and line.”
“Nelsons is engrossed in the music, and it’s impossible not to succumb to his obvious and infectious enthusiasm...That’s one of the unexpected joys of this concert; everyone is clearly having fun...A delightful overture, a competent concerto, and a Scheherazade to die for.”
