In an inspired performance, the energies present of both, performers and audience add up to something greater than anybody could experience individually.”

Barber of Seville in Montreal

“On the instrumental side, the work of the Orchestre Metropolitain is remarkable. The Overture of the opera, already greatly applauded, demonstrated refined playing of the violins. Conducted by the experienced Austrian conductor Christoph Campestrini, the orchestra was at its best.”

“It also helps when all the instrumental choirs are in sync, when the louds and the softs are clearly audible and when the balance is perfect throughout. Campestrini not only did all the preceding, but gave the third movement, an Adagio cantabile, its proper slowness. His conducting was as good as we’ve heard so far this season.”

Grand Rapids Symphony Delivers Power and Passion with Guest Pianist Dubravka Tomsic

“Campestrini was off to a rip-roaring start Friday with Dmitri Shostakovich’s ‘Festive Overture,’ a six minute piece the composer dashed off in three days. It isn’t fluff. It is fireworks. There was no mistaking just how big and fast Campestrini wanted to go with this roller coaster of a ride, and the Grand Rapids Symphony was all too happy to go for the gusto. That was Campestrini’s personal best.”

“Again, Campestrini, whose conducting verges on balletic, elucidated the distinct qualities of each work, capturing the musical essence of Richard Wagner in its great variety.”

Houston Symphony’s vibrant ‘Italian’ program boasts music for all seasons

“Showing a more dramatic dash here, Campestrini’s conducting brought out the sprightliness and vigor of the opening movement, the forces nicely balanced. The orchestra’s smoothly flowing work conveyed the more subtle appeal of the two interior movements. Yet it was the dynamic rendering of the Saltarello finale that made it the work’s triumph, a whirlwind of sound that maintained precision despite the dizzying pace.”
