John Traill's conducting of the 40-minute sequence, of which his own 'Little Concertino for Six' was the penultimate work, with such strong interpretative instinct, added integrity.

One of the most talented conductors I've had the opportunity to work with in recent years. Musicians are inspired by his passion, energy, and honesty. He demonstrates a rare command of the musical form.

Finalist and Second Prize-winner at the 2006 Vakhtang Jordania International Conducting Competition, Tennessee, and Semi-finalist and Prize-winner at the 8th Leeds Conductors Competition 2005, John Traill is an outstanding and inspiring conductor.
John Traill is one of the most promising conductors of his generation in the UK, a fact supported by his highly impressive list of concert engagements in the UK over the past two or three years. He always puts the music first, has commissioned new work from his contemporaries to programme alongside standard repertoire as part of his invariably inventive programmes, and is an inspiring all-rounder, as organiser and composer in addition to his success as a conductor.

John Traill leads the players confidently through Walton's Hindemith Variations.

John has impressed on both occasions he has worked with the London Mozart Players. He directed this complex work clearly and used the limited time available very efficiently, producing an impressive performance which brought the work's strengths home to a large audience. We would have no hesitation in engaging John Traill for future concerts.
