The first reviews for the premiere recording on our new label OAE Released are in, and we were thrilled to be awarded a full 5 stars in The Independent, with the reviewer stating “Not all orchestras are the same, runs the message on the cover, and it’s true.”

Read this review and another online one below, and don’t forget you can purchase the CD direct through us on our website. Also click through for details of download sites and other suppliers.

We’re back from Paris and a second performance of our Symphonic Enlightenment programme of Wagner, Mahler and Liszt. First reviews from Friday’s performance are now in too – mainly from bloggers and online. Hopefully the Nationals will follow tomorrow. Thanks so much for the comments posted on our blog, You Tube video and also for the many Tweets we’re had as well. It’s always great to get such instant feedback!

Radio 3 recorded Friday’s concert at the Royal Festival Hall and you can listen to it at 7pm tonight, or online here for 7 days after.

Also coming up on the blog – a video interview with conductor Vladimir Jurowski, a round up of Night Shift news, pictures from Paris and a Parisien tour diary. Plus a parting shot from our intern Ingrid.

Here are a couple of reviews from this season – including a very enthusiastic one from The Independent for The Night Shift. We’ve also included a link to one bloggers account of his evening at The Night Shift.

Telegraph on 7 October concert at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, Celebrating Pergolesi

Independent on 20 October concerts at the Queen Elizabeth Hall, The Night Shift and A Grand Tour of Italy

Culture Hedonist on 20 October, The Night Shift

Well, our Prom on Sunday was a bit of an event. It’s not every day you get the OAE playing Berlioz and Wagner, and also not often that you get over 85 OAE players on stage! Plus, the Royal Albert Hall was packed to the rafters. If you couldn’t be there then you can still listen to the performance online, until this coming Sunday. Listen to it here.

The critics were out in force and here’s what they said

Here’s a selection of reviews from our concerts at the Southbank with Iván Fischer recently.

10 March (Symphonies 1,8 & 9)

Both concerts were broadcast on BBC Radio 3 and you can still listen to Symphonies 2&3 here until tomorrow and 1, 8 & 5 here until next Monday.

We’re repeating the concerts in New York next week – with the Budapest Festival Orchestra also playing at Lincoln Center at the same time, so between us we’ll play a whole Beethoven cycle, all conducted by Iván Fischer. The only small fly in the ointment at the moment is the BA strike, so while we can get there we’re not entirely sure how we’re getting home yet…
