Michal Nesterowicz press reviews.
“An extraordinary version of Prokofiev’s Fifth. All of the facets and contrasts – lyricism, violence, irony – were thrown into relief by conducting that was full of fire and youthful passion.” (La Opinion Coruña, November 2011)
“Prokofiev’s Symphony No.5 is a work of specific character. Nesterowicz conducted from memory, something the older aficionados appreciated greatly. Through an energy which in other hands could have been excessive, through broad and free-breathing phrasing and the clear exposition of the complicated character of the work, he demonstrated a complete mastery of the score. The bellicose irony of the allegro marcato, the emotional tension between the drama and the lyrical elements of the adagio, and the dramatic sarcasm of the allegro giocoso were all presented to great effect.” (Julian Carrillo, El Pais, November 2011)
“The apotheosis of Mahler’s Fifth Symphony. A major part of the success must go to the extraordinary work of the Chief Conductor Michal Nesterowicz. The Polish conductor demonstrated a complete knowledge of the score (conducting entirely from memory) highlighting all of the details of this exacting work.” (Alvaro Gallegos,BeethovenFM, February 2011)
