„A word about the conductor, Paolo Bressan,
and the Prag Philarmonia which
does well what is being expected from it
(with colors, especially in the Overture of
Vespri Siciliani, colors that used to be found
in the Czech Philharmonic of the great era!).
Bressan knows his subject, attempts to
heighten the lyricism of the Italians
that he knows inside out. …“
Bertrand Renard (francetvinfo)

 


“The young Italian conductor,
former assistant of Daniele Gatti and
Christian Thielemann, proved to be an
ecstatic and talented showman
who propelled the responsive orchestra
through a churning sea of emotions,
especially with the intermezzo from
Puccini’s Manon Lescaut.”
Stefan Enders, Der Standard, Wien

A conductor with a beautiful lyricism
„A word about the conductor, Paolo Bressan, and the Prag Philarmonia which does well what is being expected from it (with colors, especially in the Overture of Vespri Siciliani, colors that used to be found in the Czech Philharmonic of the great era!).

Bressan knows his subject, attempts (and often succeeds) to heighten the lyricism of the Italians that he knows inside out: his Verdi has violence, his Intermezzo of Manon Lescaut by Puccini sings with impassioned lyricism and he takes good care of the always problematic balance between soloist and orchestra, which is, I dare confess, one of my obsessions. …“
