Britten and Prokofiev in Brussels

<< previous next >>

Kochanovsky maintained a relentless march rhythm with the help of bass and snare drums to the resounding battle cries on low brass, as the woodwinds provided some relief in an interlude […] Oozing with lush lyricism and sensitivity where necessary, as in Romeo’s Variation and Love Dance, the orchestra proved it was also capable of a shrill tone and sharp exchanges in Meeting of Tybalt and Mercutio and The Duel […] Kochanovsky left nothing to chance, and it showed. His meticulous attention to the kaleidoscopic range of orchestral colours and the timbres of the instruments in different combinations bore fruit.
