2022/02/13 Stir Review - Janet Smith

“The added draw, of course, was the chance to see Europe-based music director emeritus Jonathan Darlington (…) Electric voltage seemed to pass through his baton in the rousing orchestral and choral crescendos of the Easter-hymn “Regina Coeli, laetare”. Later he paused dramatically to bring the strings down to extreme quiet at the beginning of the famous “Intermezzo”, gently building them back up with big round arm movements, his stick stabbing downward to bring in the low brass. The orchestra found all the nuance in the lush score.” – Janet Smith
