Libor Pešek press reviews

“Pešek shapes Dvorak’s melodies with great subtlety: his ability to achieve fine-grained orchestral phrasing is unrivalled among contemporary conductors”

- International Record Review

“Pešek has a natural way with early 20th century Czech repertoire”

- BBC Music Magazine

“The Czech maestro, a link with his country’s great; but threatened, musical tradition, conducts with old-fashioned authority.”

- The Times

“Pešek gave a sense of symphonic coherence, a consistent eloquence derived from beauty of tone and limpid phrasing”

- Andrew Clements, Financial Times

“Pešek inspired the orchestra with the necessary unanimity of purpose to make the music pay off. The score’s grand sweep sounded thrilling in its excess … the final climax left the audience short of breath”

- Joshua Kosman, San Francisco Chronicle

“Libor Pešek, a guest conductor that makes a difference, had an immediate influence on style, tone and balance, and produced three glorious performances … Conducting with focused, purposeful gesture and exemplary economy of movement, Pešek produced a performance of excellent balance, refinement and great expressiveness. Both the Mozart and the Dvorak were as finely played as one is likely to hear those works. Here is a conductor!”

- Robert Commanday, San Francisco Chronicle
