Review: Mei-Ann Chen (Translation)

01.27.17
Mei-Ann Chen
Sydsvenskan

The conductor of this evening: Mei-Ann Chen obvioulsy loved the music. She had the score of Mahler’s 1st Symphony in her head and her arms and hands in the best manner. She conveyed precision and dedication and mastered the incessant stretching of tempo. The orchestra gave her all attention with special effort from all sides in the mighty orchestration.
 
The acoustics enhanced the accomplishment. Everything becomes audible (even what maybe should not be heard).  The performance indeed offered a captivating  and inspired interpretation. And Mei-Ann Chen with this performance gave a prepossessing/winning debut in front of the kindled Malmö audience.
