Amadigi Review

January 10, 2008

 

In its latest edition (Number 120 – August 2007), Early Music Review has published a review of the Barbican performance of Amadigi, conducted by Christopher. Here is a snippet from the review by Andrew Benson-Wilson:

'...The first star was Christopher Hogwood, one of the most technically correct conductors around. He has a very clear beat, no awkward mannerisms, graceful and flowing movements that help to make him an attractive conductor to watch, and an overall feeling that he is serving the music, rather than attempting to get the music to serve him. What joy!...'
