OPERAPLUS

The whole evening was unmistakably determined by the outstanding performance of Andreas Schager and the well-conducted play by the Orchestra of the State Opera conducted by Matthias Fletzberger.

It was hard to believe that the same state opera orchestra played (of course, in a much larger cast), which had fought so hard a month ago with Beethoven's Fidelio in the Estates Theater.

It was certainly the merit of the conductor Matthias Fletzberger, who led the orchestra with a balanced sound through the sudden musical twists of the ring

BACHTRACK

"Fletzberger knows his Wagner, especially the Ring, in which the Prague State Opera Orchestra glowed positively."

(Frank Kuznik, 10.2018, )

KLASIKAPLUS

"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."

 PERFORMING ARTS JOURNAL TOKYO

"Up to and including the encore, all the pieces of the evening were well selected. The soloists worked very well with the conductor, who was also responsible for arranging the pieces. The Tokyo Mitaka Philharmonic Orchestra was able to fulfill the musical wishes of the conductor in a spirited and precise manner."

"An artist of first order … In the area of the late romanticism Fletzberger has to fear nobody. An extraordinary feeling for rhythm, inexhaustible strength, endless richness of moods and fabulous feeling for proportions"

DIE PRESSE

„Kreneks Musik mit ihrem kraftvollen Zugriff und ihrem expressionistischen Pathos, ihren zwingend aufgebauten Chorszenen, ihrer plastischen Farbgebung und elementaren Rhythmik ist von hohem Reiz. Matthias Fletzberger hat sie, unterstützt von den exzellenten Österreichischen Kammersymphonikern … sehr sicher und eindrucksvoll realisiert.“

(Gerhard Kramer)
