Marin Alsop, conductor
In an era when great Brahms interpreters are a bit thin on the ground, Alsop is well on her way to becoming one of the best.
London Philharmonic, Brahms 1 (The Guardian)
Alsop led a supple, vibrant account
keeping the textures lucid and shaping the brassy climaxes so that they were weighty and inevitable..an impassioned performance.
New York Philharmonic, Copland Festival (New York Times)
A major force for good has arrived on the British music scene in the form of Marin Alsop..she combines charisma with dynamism, intelligence with enthusiasm and flair. She also gets results I havent heard the CLS play this well in years.
City of London Sinfonia, contemporary British music programme (The Guardian)
Alsop was authoritave and impressive, eliciting the finest of results. Long may her British association prosper.

Alsop coaxed real sensitivity and was keenly aware of the subtle give and take of the accompaniment. Make no mistake, this was a rare and wonderful experience

an impressive London debut.

An especially deep and nuanced reading.
