'Knockout' in Leeds with English Chamber OrchestraJanuary 31, 2018
Alexander’s concert with the English Chamber Orchestra in the Leeds International Concert Series lat weekend was “an absolute knockout”.
Of the interpretation of Schubert’s unfinished Symphony No 8 in B Minor, critic Geoffrey Mogridge commented “The pace, transparency and balance of the ECO’s performance conducted by Alexander Shelley was breathtaking.” … “The dynamic range was just as astonishing – from softly foreboding strings and sighing woodwinds to dramatically loud climaxes.”
And of Mozart’s ‘Haffner’ Symphony “This was an absolute knockout – crystal clear, graceful, and bursting with rhythmic vigour.”
