“Stravinsky’s Rite of Spring, right from Isabel Dowell’s classy opening bassoon solo, was shot through with instrumental brilliance.

The score’s rhythmic irregularities held no terrors: with clear and unflurried direction from conductor Simon Wright, the orchestra negotiated the potential pitfalls with sure-footed teamwork.

A remarkable, and thrilling, achievement.”
