ECO in Conservatorio di Milano

I was sitting in the sold-out Sala Verdi before the start of the concert last night, wondering whether there would be any Milanese booing at the fact that the Festival had not replaced Sir Colin Davis with an equally eminent conductor, or even any conductor at all.  However, the audience warmly greeted the entry of the ECO players onto the platform and the first sound I heard from a man in the row behind after the Hebrides Overture came to an end , was a heartfelt “wow”,  before the audience broke into extremely loud applause.  The whole concert buzzed; the audience seemed to know that every member of the orchestra was giving 110%.  It was like listening to a 45 piece chamber ensemble.  What more can I say myself but “Thank you so much to all our players for a terrific performance.”Pauline Gilbertson – General Manager
