ANAM recently found a blog written by a man called John who attend the Musica Viva Huntington Estate Music Festival this year. Here are some lovely words he had to say about ANAM:
As suggested previously, the ANAM Chamber Orchestra deserves special mention. Mere students? Sure. Could they play? Sure. They had but a week rehearsal time with Anthony Marwood before taking on this professional gig. They delivered on every level. Their Vasks did not miss a beat (and believe your correspondent: beats are hard to find in “Distant Light”.) It was completely professional. Their tone in Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings was rich and pure. Their Bartok divertimento was disciplined and delivered with panache. They displayed attack and passion which they, hopefully, will carry over into their individual solo performances at ANAM and beyond.
