After two superb performances that featured the Strauss last week, at Oxford Town Hall and Symphony Hall Birmingham, John and OCYO take this new programme to Germany.  With commendations from Patrick Bailey and Sarah Freestone, at MFY (regarding the Strauss), praising a performance that was ‘hugely impressive’, ‘mature’, with a ‘magnificent sound’ and ‘excellent attention to rubato’, this will be an exciting and memorable week for the orchestra. To quote Patrick Bailey further, the ‘Strauss is unforgiving, and you [ocyo] not only tackled it, you tackled it with class!’
