Mark Berry / Gewandhausorchester Leipzig

Preciso análisis de Josep Vicent, que ha sabido desplegar todo el potencial dinámico y colorista con sentido lúdico sustentando en todo momento el impulso rítmico. (…) una de las sinfonías más hermosas de Chaikovski, con la que Josep Vicent cautivó al auditorio desde la concentración que pedía a la orquesta. (…)
