Olari Elts press reviews
'Central to the performances was the driving delivery of the orchestra's principal guest conductor, Olari Elts. Sharply-focused energy and authoritative control are the hallmarks of his style, which translated into performances that captured the clarity of Schubert's orchestral writing, and more importantly, steered clear of over-indulgence. Given such encouragement, a compact SCO delivered both the Third and Fifth Symphonies with lean, clean and spirited playing. Elts went for the no-nonsense approach, shaping the work's phrases and textures with enough suppleness to capture the essential warmth'
' Olari Elts transmits so much energy to his musicians, soloists and choir'
