Santtu-Matias Rouvali press reviews
"Rouvali, who is creating a stir at an international level, showed a great flair for Beethoven with the Egmond Overture. He created beautiful contrasts between the grandeur of the piece and the lyrics with perfectly measured dynamics. He has a fluttering, strongly upward gesture, which enhances the orchestral tone with air and transparency. Dvorak’s Eighth was a passionate performance - atmospheric, elegant, compelling, imposing and exuberant."
