Reviews & Press

 
 

Finnish National Opere - Tchaikovsky - Eugene Onegin

Mikhail Agrest’s direction of the orchestra was pure poetry and emotion. Affection, hope, intellect, and beauty – every element was cherished like a petal of a flower. He led the orchestra through the musical narrative, like a good shepherd.
 

- Matti Saurama

It was a  performance, so rare in our days,  that showed integrity and unity of the musical and theatrical incarnations. In many respects this is due to the intelligent manner of the conductor,
music in the blood. A former student of Mariss Jansons, he led the orchestra, bringing out inner details and nuances , and musicians obediently trusted each of his maningful gestures 
 

- Vladimir Dudin,

Stuttgart Ballet - Liszt - Mayerlink

Three cheers too for Mikhail Agrest and the Staatsorchester who have audibly worked hard to bring out the extraordinary richness and varied sonorities of John Lanchbery’s masterful arrangement of Liszt. In Stuttgart, this score was a new experience for both conductor and orchestra who have approached it with engagement and respect, making it sound fresh and singularly right. Agrest elicited magnificent playing, with warm string sound and emphatic brass. Time and time again, the detailing in the score was brought out in a way not heard in London.
