"[The RSNO gave a] performance of extraordinary acuity, meticulous pacing, tremendous balancing, and stunning understanding...It was a complete entity, and gave this listener one of the greatest musical experiences of his life."
Michael Tumelty, The Glagow Herald

"...Under conductor Peter Oundjian, [the RSNO] conjured a magical evening... Oundjian’s Strauss waltzes were wonderfully charismatic – full of grand sweeps, yet sharply etched with authentically Viennese touches. His syrupy-smooth Die Fledermaus Overture was truly a summons to the ball, and his Blue Danube gracefully poignant. Oundjian was touchingly faithful to the idiom, and the orchestra responded with elegance and bite."
David Kettle, The Scotsman
