“What a debut! Full of energy. And with an orchestra that sounds almost transformed – inspired with renewed enthusiasm and new ‘spirit’. Even more: a great chemistry between Fawzi Haimor and the audience was established instantly. “Good vibes” – and finally never-ending applause and cheers. The atmosphere of a new journey was in the air. The new Principal Conductor made a brilliant start – with Americana-Hits from John Adams (crazy) and Aaron Copland (magical). And with an expressive and sensitive Tchaikovksy no. 4. What more could you want?”
