BBC awards Conductor John Andrews Recording of the Month
Continuing the critical acclaim of the recording of Arthur Sullivan’s Oratorio ‘Light of the World,’ BBC Music Magazine rates the new CD Choral Disc of the Month.
Critic George Hall awards 5 stars to the performance and 5 stars to the recording of this ‘almighty revival of Arthur Sullivan’s biblical oratorio.’ He writes “Conductor John Andrews does an excellent job, bringing constant motion to the score and drawing refined playing from the BBC Concert Orchestra and articulate singing from the BBC Symphony Chorus and Kinder Children’s Choir.”
John Andrews is currently in rehearsals with English Touring Opera conducting the first professional touring production of Elizabeth I in over two hundred years. Soprano Mary Plazas stars as Elizabeth I.
Elizabeth I opens on 2nd March at Hackney Empire.
