The Arts Fuse: Concert Review: Boston Philharmonic Orchestra plays Mozart and Bruckner

" nuanced were [Deljavan] and the orchestra’s phrasings and so clearly simpatico his partnership with the conductor, that there was never a question of the rightness of the night’s interpretation. Here’s an artist, one realized, who ought to be a regular presence in Boston’s concert life... As if to emphasize the point, Deljavan provided a distinguished, expansive encore in the form of Schubert’s Allegretto in C minor (D. 915). Here, in microcosm, was a reprise of his Mozart, just completely unaccompanied: radiant, rhapsodic, otherworldly. Those latter adjectives applied equally well to Friday’s Bruckner... Zander is an accomplished Brucknerian and Friday’s performance, one [of] the only high-profile commemorations of the symphonist’s bicentennial in town this year, proved fittingly sweeping and vigorous." - Jonathan Blumhofer. Read the full review.

"Deljavan’s solo exposition, far from conjuring Don Giovanni, seemed to have in mind The Marriage of Figaro, which premiered just a month after the concerto. This is not to say he and Zander weren’t on the same page — rather that together they created a complementary exploration of the two operas. Deljavan’s classical-shading-into-romantic sensibility felt perfect for this work. He brought to the Allegro weight and inflection, a tonal arsenal that ranged from rich to melting, and rippling, rhapsodic passagework. His solo development was a study in wistful nostalgia; his cadenza, going from torrential to reflective in an eyeblink, had the feel of an improvisation that summed up the movement in 90 seconds." -Jeffrey Gantz. Read the full review.
