Concert review – Wagner, Vaughan Williams & Beethoven / BBC Scottish Symphony Orchestra

“Manze sculpted lines of searing intensity through the densely loaded score [of Vaughan Williams’ Symphony No.9]; there’s a clarity to the textures he draws from this orchestra that really focused and drove the symphony’s wayward energy… His choice not to overegg the extremes, and the orchestra’s bold responses, made this as forthright and coherent a performance of the work as you’re likely to hear.”
