  • Donohoe, BBCSSO, Prieto, City Halls, Glasgow Impressive, weighty Scottish debut by Brazilian conductor in Shakespeare-led programme

    "Even the popular component on the programme, a selection of “concert movements” from Prokofiev’s Romeo and Juliet, was out of the ordinary. Missing only – and it’s quite an only – the Balcony Scene, it was easily the best sequence I’ve heard in the concert hall, if we really can’t have the complete ballet (and that works best of all, as Gergiev has several times shown in London and Edinburgh). Prieto had a way of producing perfect definition, weight and intensity at mostly quite slow tempi in a way that reminds me of Stokowski protégé José Serebrier. He pulled out of the hat the most powerful of all “Montagues and Capulets” and incredible searing to the limits of possibility in Romeo’s lament and suicide at Juliet’s tomb."
