„urgent and powerful“ J. Brahms 1. Symphony, RTE Dublin

The weekend’s concerts included the RTÉ National Symphony Orchestra debut of German conductor Anja Bihlmaier. Bihlmaier’s musical approach was upfront, and her delivery of Brahms’s First Symphony was urgent and powerful. She was happy to pile on the layers of musical reference in Swedish composer Anders Hillborg’s Exquisite Corpse. And her forthrightness in Strauss’s Vier letzte Lieder was unbuttoned enough to challenge the often beautiful shaping of soprano Ailish Tynan in the singer’s lower register.
