The BBC Symphony Orchestra and conductor David Charles Abell wowed us with a concert that was intelligently programmed, lavishly resourced, carefully rehearsed, and carried off with terrific brio.

The Telegraph 

The Philly POPS has evolved artistically in the past few years, and especially since Abell took over in 2020… What impressed most, though, was the overall sound, buoyed by Abell’s smart taste for inventive orchestrations…

The Philadelphia Inquirer

 

It would be hard to imagine a better musical performance... Conductor David Charles Abell led a nuanced account of this complex score, obtaining playing of depth and beauty. Balance between pit and stage can be tricky... but singers were always audible (even in the noisiest moments), and solo playing was glorious.
