5* review for Vasily's final Royal Liverpool recording

An extract from Norman Lebrecht's glowing review of Vasily's final recording as Chief Conductor of Royal Liverpool...... 

"… Zemlinsky and Schreker went way over the top in their exploitation of orchestral texture, splashing every colour in the paintbox and squeezing the last drop of curdled angst from the interstices of strings and woodwinds, with violin solos to gloop it all together.

It’s deliciously forbidden stuff, breaking several rules of common decency and so gender incorrect that the current thought police will fine anyone they hear whistling it.

Needless to say, this Covid-year album by the Royal Liverpool Philharmonic and their departing conductor Vasily Petrenko is demonstrably irresistible. Played with no stops pulled or holds barred, this is a wash of sound we have been dying to hear, if not in a live hall then on record. And when we do get back into a hall, I will be the first in line demanding to know why orchestras don’t play sounds like these that wet our lips, instead of tick-box works by marginal try-hards. Bring back orchestral decadence, all is forgiven"

Happy Birthday Martha!

We join the classical music world and fans across the globe in wishing a very Happy 80th Birthday to Martha Argerich!

Medici TV have released an 80 minute documentary which you can watch by clicking the link below. Astonishingly, the second except is a televised performance of Tchaikovsky's 1st Piano Concerto with Martha, Sir Charles Groves and the Liverpool Phil from 1977! Let us know if you were lucky enough to be there!

Join us June 19th (also 22nd & 28th) for a three night luxury stay at the Hope Street Hotel when we will use their wonderful new private cinema and enjoy a live concert each evening beamed directly from Hamburg. Martha will joined in concert by an outstanding line-up of artists including Daniel Barenboim, Anne-Sophie Mutter, Cecilia Bartoli, Mischa Maisky, Gidon Kremer, Nicholas Angelich, Nelson Goerner, Renaud Capuçon & Maria João Pires (to name just a few!). 

 

 

 

COVID-19 Update

The Global Travel Taskforce Report and Traffic Light system have proven as useless as expected and any hope of international travel in the coming couple of months seems unrealistic. We have therefore cancelled any plans outside of the UK until early September and will review this again later in June. Meanwhile we have arranged a series of UK based holidays which we hope you find interesting & exciting. We also hope they present a chance to meet with old friends and enjoy some great music & food whilst 'settling in' to the new way of travelling!

Our team will continue to work part-time from home during May & June but can be reached by email tours@maestrotouring.com or on 0151 707 1727.
