Spitalfields Music Summer Festival

★★★★ “The furious panache of the LCO’s performance, expertly channelled by the conductor Hugh Brunt, was overwhelming… Frenzied patches suggested improvisation. But no: Brunt’s conducting of every bar, from the opening buzzing bass line to the sudden consonant end assertive, was graceful, just like the music. Wonderful.” (Geoff Brown)
