John Storgårds in Concert

18. August 2022, Rovaniemi Church
Lapland Chamber Orchestra


Storgårds provided a heart-thumping performance of Beethoven’s Symphony no. 7, his physical style on the podium extending into the orchestra as they, too, bent and swayed with the music. [...] We’re hearing a lot of this symphony these days, but this exhilarating performance was right up there.

Mark Thomas, Bachtrack, 15 October 2020 London Philharmonic Orchestra
