“Mastodóntico concierto de la Orquestra Barcelona en L’Auditori Barcelona con Jurassic Park in Concert, en el 25 aniversario de la épica y tribal partitura de John Williams.

El director fue Anthony Gabriele, a quien tengo el gusto de conocer y considerarlo colega a raíz del concierto de Singin’ in the Rain Live In Concert meses atrás en el Tívoli. La labor de Gabriele conduciendo la orquesta fue espléndida, dirigiendo unos músicos que supieron estar siempre a la altura (cosa nada fácil), bordando el lirismo y orgullo del inicio, con la llegada a la isla con las cuerdas cogiendo todo el protagonismo, para lentamente derivar a frenético final de los velocirraptors con una potencia sonora que ponía los pelos de punta.”

“Mammoth concert of the Orchestra Barcelona in L’Auditori Barcelona with Jurassic Park in Concert, on the 25th anniversary of the epic and tribal score by John Williams.

The conductor was Anthony Gabriele, whom I had the pleasure to meet and consider a colleague following Singin’ in the Rain – Live In Concert at The Tivoli a few months ago. Gabriele’s work leading the orchestra was splendid, directing musicians who always knew how to rise to the occasion (not an easy thing), embroidering the lyricism and pride of the beginning, with the arrival to the island, with the strings taking all the protagonism, to slowly derive the frenetic end of the velocirraptors with a sonorous power that made the hair stand on end.”

“Lahti Symphony Orchestra and Anthony Gabriele made Herrmann proud with a stunning concert presentation of Vertigo. Under Anthony Gabriele’s inspired conducting, the tempi, phrasing and orchestral balance were all admirably taken care of, resulting in a performance that would have made Herrmann proud… I felt deeper connection with Herrmann than I’ve ever had with the original soundtrack recording.

I can but express my utmost gratitude to Maestro Gabriele and the Lahti Symphony Orchestra for their marvellous salute to Herrmann. A feast for film music.”

“Nearly 80 years after its release, there is not a lot left to say about the wonderful The Wizard Of Oz. A classic movie, beautifully crafted from script through to performance, design, photography, choreography and a legendary score.

Until, that is, one has the privilege of watching the movie on the big screen with the score played live by a 64 strong orchestra under the baton of Anthony Gabriele.

Judy Garland et al may be captured, beautifully, in that flickering light beam and one may know the movie thoroughly, but Gabriele truly takes this score over the rainbow.”

“Gabriele is one of London’s finest stage-conductors, adept at seamlessly linking an orchestra to the ebb & flow of a live production.”
