A day after returning from a hugely exciting and successful three week tour with the New Zealand Symphony Orchestra and Colin Currie (read reviews in the press area), which included a free concert for the earthquake-hit people of Christchurch, Alexander Shelley went straight into rehearsals for the opening of his second season at the helm of the Nuremberg Symphony Orchestra. In a programme including Chopin’s 2nd piano concerto (with solist Cedric Tiberghien) and Stravinsky’s ballet Petroushka, Shelley kicked off the season to rapturous reviews: “[Shelley] was immediately able to prove the astonishing achievements he has made in the sound-culture of his musicians: Georges Bizet’s French-patriotic “Patrie” Overture succeeded not only in being full of verve and elegance, but also satisfied with its finely tuned string and wind balance and its mighty final crescendo”.
