Reviews (concert):
FAZ (Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung): A febrile, electrifying rendition of Mendelssohn’s Fourth Symphony

Fono Forum: Amid much controversy and debate, the performance under the baton of Roberto Paternostro at Bayreuth’s town hall has finally taken place and it was hailed as a great success.

Richard Wagner: Siegfried-Idyll

Süddeutsche Zeitung: It would have been hard to imagine a more moving Idyll. When the orchestra finished playing, the audience rose to their feet; the applause only began to fade when the concertmaster signaled for the other members of orchestra to leave the stage.

Berliner Morgenpost: Paternostro celebrated Wagner with a full, rich sound and was rewarded with a standing ovation from the audience.

TIME: it would have been hard to find a more moving Idyll
Ha’aretz: Israeli orchestra makes musical history by playing Wagner piece in Germany

Stern: It was a historical moment..
