CONDUCTOR

Franz Schmidt Symphony no. 1 

“A potent performance from the BBC National Orchestra of Wales conducted by Jonathan Berman. Full of life, energy and optimism. Berman communicates the natural organic quality he finds in the music which seems so simple he says but takes a great amount of work to achieve. Excellent recording as well and I’m delighted to say that they’re going to complete the series of all four symphonies in the run-up to the composer’s 150th birthday in 2024.”

Andrew Macgregor, BBC Radio 3 Record Review 

Debussy’s Pelleas et Melisande

“Jonathan Berman conducts with great care and elegance, it’s brave and deeply affecting.”
