Lyriqueinfo – Brahms/Schumann concert in Saintes

“(…) David Stern conducts Brahms’ masterpiece with firmness. The tempos and nuances are almost perfect, the departures are given in a precise manner; the orchestra, visibly galvanized by the presence of David Stern on the podium, follows its conductor with a millimetric precision. (…)

Stern’s nervous, firm but supple, clear, precise direction pushes the musicians to transcend themselves and to interpret Schumann’s masterpiece with a constantly renewed energy and enthusiasm. The nuances and tempos are almost perfect and Stern chisels each theme, each movement like a goldsmith working on a jewel.”

Hélène Briard – 22/12/2021 – Lyriqueinfo

Opus Klassiek – Mayr’s L’amor conjugale review

“There is by no means lacking in drama in this performance, conducted by David Stern with a pleasant pace, neither in the playing of Opera Fuoco, nor in the solo contributions of the young, emerging vocalists.”
