The 2012 Glyndebourne Festival opened on Sunday 20 May with a new production of Janácek’s The Cunning Little Vixen, directed by Melly Still. The London Philharmonic Orchestra appeared under Principal Conductor Vladimir Jurowski.
‘Vladimir Jurowski led the LPO in a rapturous account of the score, giving point to all the skittishness in the music yet keeping the focus firmly on its poetic sensibility; if you want to hear why I love this composer so much, just listen to how this orchestra plays him under this conductor’
Melanie Eskenazi, MusicOMH.com
