“Amalia Hall, the orchestra’s concertmaster, has played the work overseas, where she has been a prizewinner in a number of prestigious competitions, and she handled the solo part with both brilliance and immense understanding.

“Taddei interjected humor and some light-hearted infographics, including one of “Star Wars” hero Han Solo…”
“It was consummate and controlled conducting, and clearly Mozart is close to Mr. Taddei’s artistic centre.”
