Concert Review: The Scotsman (UK)

The Scotsman (UK), 15 April 2013
Classical review: Czech Philharmonic, Usher Hall, Edinburgh – Scotland – Scotsman.comTHE Czech Philharmonic's Saturday-night visit to Edinburgh's Usher Hall, part of a six-stop UK tour, was a curiously muted affair. Czech Philharmonic Usher Hall, Edinburgh *** Not muted in terms of colour – anything but. Under chief conductor Jiří Bělohlávek, the orchestra glowed in vivid hues, with golden strings (and growling double basses arranged across the back of the stage), radiant horns and deliciously acidic woodwind.
