"Matthias Fletzberger led the State Opera Orchestra to a remarkable performance - which remained consistently high throughout the evening. In the first work of the program - Overture to Rienzi - one could enjoy a beautifully phrased introduction.
Fletzberger did not emphasize the sharp dynamic contradictions, but rather dosed the passion in order to make it appear with overwhelming strength and festive effect. The ending of the overture did not sound noisy or pathetic, but simply "just" magnificent."
