REVIEWS

quotes from the spanish press

Oviedo 
"Nott was able to extract the best from each section, achieving a particularly attractive sound from the Swiss ensemble and manipulating the different sound planes brilliantly." La nueva España

Madrid  
"A balanced and brilliant performance with an orchestra of a notable level... The audience gave a generous ovation for the return of Mahler's symphony to the Auditorio Nacional de Madrid." Codalario

"The Suisse Romande Switzerland showed good momentum, better than their 2017 visit... Naturally, the success was overwhelming." La Rázon

Zaragoza 
"Nott's deep dive into Mahler finds an ideal vehicle in the sensational Suisse Romande." El Pais

Barcelona 
"Nott's reading - without score - was full of contrasts and a sumptuous, balanced sound, with top-class soloists giving a performance to remember." El Periódico

"the aural result was one of the greatest [of the world's orchestras], and it is not surprising that the Orchestre de la Suisse Romande has already named Nott a life member...Much more than a concert."  El Punt Avui

Alicante 
"Last night's concert will remain in the memory of the audience, who at the end of the concert wanted to celebrate the work and dedication of the musicians with a fantastic applause." Periódico de Alicante
