Peter Whelan conducts with imaginative touches.
The vivacious band is spiritedly conducted by Peter Whelan
The Irish Baroque Orchestra brings out the rich textures in Gluck’s score to cradle Orfeo’s grief. Conductor Peter Whelan’s timing is perfect and has plenty of personality.
” Conductor Peter Whelan and the Irish Chamber Orchestra gave what was an invigorating performance, full of energy and lightness of touch. I was impressed by the crisp articulation and sharp rhythms. The balance was well struck between singers and orchestra allowing the glorious vocal lines to soar. “ Andrew Larkin, Bachtrack.com
