Reviews: 14 December 2011 – Christoph Eschenbach & Renée Fleming

The London Philharmonic Orchestra performed Wagner’s Tannhäuser Overture, Strauss’s Four Last Songs and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 7 to a sold-out Royal Festival Hall on Wednesday 14 December, under conductor Christoph Eschenbach with soprano Renée Fleming.

Reviewed by Edward Seckerson in The Independent:
Christoph Eschenbach shadowed and accommodated Fleming’s every nuance adoringly and the London Philharmonic Orchestra played most beautifully.

Reviewed by Peter Reed on Classicalsource.com:
There was some superlative playing glowing away in the LPO, with leader Pieter Schoeman breaking all hearts with his ravishing violin solo in ‘Beim Schlafengehn’ … the LPO was playing at the top of its form.

Listen to the concert on BBC iPlayer (until 20 December).
