Press quotes

'The Stravinsky was hair-raisingly exciting right from the opening notes in the lower strings with extraordinarily fierce lashes in a brilliant, rhythmically razor-sharp dance from hell and a broad, expansive finale.'
- Mischa Spel, NRC Handelsblad, concert review Stravinsky – De vuurvogel

'Jansons’s Rite was hard and ruthless, raw, rough, barbaric, yet executed by a perfect ‘machine’ – the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra – which gave an incredibly good performance.'
- Sandra Kooke, Trouw concert review Stravinsky – Le sacre du printemps

'Jansons unleashes exceptional Rite'
- Erik Voermans, Het Parool, concert review Stravinsky – Le sacre du printemps
