Jonathan Nott press reviews

“The Ninth [symphony] provides an even stiffer test of Nott's Mahlerian credentials, one that he passes with flying colours. His reading of the Ninth is a remarkably lucid account that gradually builds from a notably spacious first movement to a luminously intense account of the finale. What seems at first to be a well crafted, intelligently musical performance has, by the end, become something much more remarkable.” (The Guardian, February 2010)

“Conductor Jonathan Nott, in his Cleveland debut, keeps the orchestra taut and alert, while the horns make uniquely cohesive contributions. In the “Science” music, Nott crafts a gripping crescendo, beginning with eerie stillness and culminating in a writhing contrapuntal peak.” (The Plain Dealer, Cleveland, November 2009)

“Finally came Bruckner’s wonderful but problematic third symphony. The Bambergers and their conductor Jonathan Nott boldly opted for the early unrevised version… Nott’s pacing was so firm and well-judged, that it seemed utterly convincing.” (Daily Telegraph, July 2009)
