Rave Reviews from ‘Tristan und Isolde’ for Justin Brown

Proving yet again Justin Brown’s affinity for Wagner, critics unanimously praised his musical leadership of the Badische Staatskapelle Karlsruhe in a new production of Wagner’s Tristan und Isolde this spring. Here are a few outstanding quotes:

“Brown… with his powerful grasp of the score, was wholly convincing.” – J.-M. Wieneke, Opernglas

“The conductor Justin Brown leads the Badische Staatskapelle to ever higher summits. He plays the score uncut, exactly as Cosima Wagner wanted, which lent the interpretation a certain authenticity.” – Alexander Walther, Der Neue Merker

“Music director Justin Brown astonished us with a phenomenal interpretation… This accomplished Wagner conductor moulded the gorgeous playing of the orchestra in moderate tempi for the long monologues, achieving a concentrated and fresh reading of the score.” – -Gerhard Hoffmann, Der Neue Merker

“Under Music director Justin Brown, this orchestra … offered something actually more interesting: great, often disturbing, unremitting, tension-filled music theatre, like the last echo of a forgotten yearning.” –Bernhard Doppler,

“The decisive share of the success of this “Tristan” belongs to Justin Brown… He lead the orchestra to extraordinary heights.” – Rüdiger Krohn, Badische Neueste Nachrichten
