  • Bruckner Orchestra Linz

    Linz, Austria
    Apr 2024
    • Harry Ogg and the Bruckner Orchestra also played their part here, carrying their very young colleague with more than just a hand and accompanying her with absolute attentiveness and a finely balanced sound. These qualities were also evident in the Enigma Variations, which were interpreted in an exceptionally appealing and multi-layered manner. Harry Ogg avoided clichéd interpretative traditions and followed the score very closely in his reading, presenting Elgar as a subtle sound magician. [TRANSLATION]

    • Great guest conductor! It was easy to sympathise with the guest conductor Ogg. With his unobtrusive, yet temperamental character, he quickly warmed to our orchestra. The dramatic flourishes of an accomplished opera conductor could not be ignored, but his emotional relationship to English music, with its often hidden expressive depth, was also convincing.
