On Friday 10 February, the London Philharmonic Orchestra under conductor Marin Alsop performed Kodály’s Concerto for Orchestra, Dvorák’s Symphony No. 7, and Chopin’s Piano Concerto No. 1 with soloist Lukáš Vondrácek.
Reviewed by Nick Breckenfield, Classicalsource.com:
Alsop whipped the LPO players into a frenzy, alert to every turn of tempo and Dvorák’s melodic profligacy. The horn solo in the second movement typified the quality of the whole (and mention must be made of top-notch contributions of the third and fourth horns too) … As all good concerts should, this one sent me out into the night with a much-changed mood. And an impatience for Alsop’s programmes next year with the LPO – American-themed as part of ‘The Rest is Noise’.
