John Storgårds in Concert

25. August 2018, Tokyo Metropolitan Theatre, Japan
Yomiuri Nippon Symphony Orchestra


It is the extraordinary finale with its incandescent climaxes that was the most thrilling aspect of tonight's performance, and while Storgårds’s interpretation at times bordered on excess, there was no doubting his heartfelt passion and commitment that carried the sweep of music on to its ineluctable end. There was so much to admire here: the ghostly, shimmering opening, the coquettish violin solo, the deep tuba theme and the consistently noble, fulsome sound from the RTÉ NSO. Time after time as the waves of climax succeeded one another, Storgårds whipped the RTÉ NSO into a priapic frenzy resulting in a thrilling rendition of Mahler 6.
