Northern Echo


La Fanciulla del West / Opera Holland Park

"Musically the performance I attended - with the young conductor Timothy Burke taking over from Stuart Stratford, who was in charge of the rest of the run - was highly persuasive. Burke drew sweeping, impassioned playing from a City of London Sinfonia on fine form, and clearly enjoying itself; the aching nostalgia and powerful vistas of the music came across with power.”



Die Fledermaus / Riverside Opera

"...fired up by some exceptional playing from a decent-sized young orchestra (20 players) and a conductor (Timothy Burke) who patently knew his stuff. Musically there were no complaints about this well-paced production…”
