“In many ways, this ‘no frills’ presentation achieved ‘the best of all possible worlds’. First, it featured the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra, under the baton of Alfonso Casado Trigo, which meant that the score was handed colours, textures and a richness that are not heard when it is executed by smaller forces. Most striking of all was the sheer musicality of the playing, so that in the Overture the languid, lyrical lines rubbed shoulders seamlessly with the tauter, tumbling rhythms. The precision was obvious, but it was used as a starting point to capture the true spirit of the piece so that the Entr’acte carried just enough of a ‘dirty’ edge.”
