Acclaim for Lawrence Foster's new Don Carlo at the Marseille Opera

06.12.17
Lawrence Foster

La Marseillaise, June 12, 2017
"La direction musicale de Lawrence Foster est exemplaire de justesse et de nuance. La partition de Verdi se trame de couleurs vraies qui plonge l’auditeur dans un clair obscure caravagesque. Verdi atteint une vérité psychologique que Foster restitue avec une grande acuité tirant de l’Orchestre de l’Opéra de Marseille des ressources de timbres et de musicalité proprement inouïes."

"Lawrence Foster's musical direction was ideal in its precision and nuances. Verdi's partition is abundantly rich in true colors that plunge the listener in a Caravaggio-style chiaroscuro. Verdi reaches a level of psychological truthfulness which Foster restored with great precision, by mobilizing resources from the Orchestre of the Marseille Opera in terms of sound colors and musicality that are entirely unheard of."

Florence Lethurgez, OLyrix, June 12, 2017
"Précision incisive de la direction musicale de Lawrence Foster" - "La direction musicale de Lawrence Foster, palpitante et précise, nerveuse et généreuse, fait accomplir à l’Orchestre Philharmonique de Marseille une très belle prestation. Il devient un personnage à part entière, qui se pare des couleurs les plus sombres de ce drame des arcanes du pouvoir et de la filiation."

"Rigorous precision of Lawrence Foster's musical leadership" - "The musical leadership by Lawrence Foster was riveting and precise, highly sensitive and generous. It let the Orchestra of the Marseille Opera achieve a very beautiful performance. The orchestra became an entire character in its own right, equipped with the darkest colors of this drama about the mysteries of power and origin."
