Concert review – Vaughan Williams, Holloway, Holst / Royal Liverpool Philharmonic Orchestra

“The RLPO sounded thrilling under an empathic Manze… Manze’s escape from the early music niche to become a brilliantly perceptive interpreter of mainstream repertoire has been an odyssey in itself, and his empathy with the RLPO, honed through an artistic residency last year, is remarkable.”
Guardian, October 2015

“Manze’s Vaughan Williams was beautifully imagined from the first gleaming pools of vibraphone and celesta to the carnivalesque scherzo for wind and the tender cavatina for strings.”
Times, October 2015
