Reviews from Donatella FLick LSO Final

“idiosyncratically elegant” - bachtrack

“Who put their head above the water? My man was the baton-less Danish-Australian Alexander Colding Smith, who might have put the judges off with some of his mannerisms, but it was only for him that the LSO really started to sound like the LSO, and he was the only one whose body actually seemed to respond to the music in a real sense. Watch the final on medici.tv and decide for yourself.” - The Times
