Florian Schuck writes an equally detailed and enthusiatic review about Remy Ballot’s Vienna debut with the Klangkollektiv Wien, including also the presentation of their new CD with Beethoven string quartets.
‘Highlight of Viennese musical life’
‘one of the most outstanding chamber orchestras of our time’.
‘The way Ballot allows the music to pause here and at the same time creates an enormous tension, which is only released in the final movement, is simply great art…He leaves nothing to chance, each phrase seems examined for its place in the greater whole. ‘Chamber’ and the ‘orchestral’ music-making arise naturally from the respective situation in the course of the music’.
