New Sussex Opera triumph!

The Sinfonia’s 2013 collaboration with New Sussex Opera proved a delight for all – players, singers and audiences alike.  Chabrier’s L’Etoile (Lucky Star in Jeremy Sams’s superb translation) is a frothy, effervescent cocktail with more than a soupçon of Offenbach or, for UK audiences, a hint of Gilbert and Sullivan.  It proved a hit for Rupert Christiansen in the Daily Telegraph as well, who wrote in his review that ‘St Paul’s Sinfonia played with terrific verve under Nicholas Jenkins’ – which was very nice to read!  You can see the whole review by clicking here

Great concert reviews on Seen and Heard

We’ve been very lucky in the last couple of months to have had very favourable press attention from the music review website Seen and Heard. Comments include:

  • ‘Full marks for this important and timely revival of a major British composer whose time is too slow in coming, and for a superb performance’
  • ‘Morley’s performance of Mozart’s last Symphony was fabulous’
  • ‘Marvellous stuff and a truly memorable evening.’
