“Die jungen Musiker unter der routinierten Leitung von Howard Griffiths bildeten einen ausgeglichenen, erfreulich homogenen Klangkörper und interpretierten leidenschaftlich, was gelegentlich zu Lasten der Feinheit ging, aber die Zuhörerschaft in den Bann schlug.”

“I have played during the tour in 10 different concert halls, what means 10 different acoustics. That is a big experience for me. “
Orchestra Member, 2006
“Am Anfang war das Orchester ein absolute heterogener Haufen”, sagt Dirigent Ralf Weikert, der die erste Tournee der neu entstandenen Philharmonie leitet. “Man spürte die unterschiedlichen Mentalitäten an, hörte die verschiedenen Stile. Ein Geiger aus Petersburg spielt eben anders als ein Geiger aus Madrid.”
Music Critic, Winterthur, October 2006
