“The jewel in the crown was undoubtedly Tchaikovsky’s sixth and final symphony…. There was a solid and never failing empathy between Monteith and the orchestra.”

Anthony Corfe

“Conductor Eugene Monteith can be very pleased with the development of the orchestra under his clear informed direction.”

Peter Lloyd Williams

“Mahler Symphony No. 2 ‘Resurrection’
One of the most impressive features of the evening was the relationship between the orchestra and conductor Eugene Monteith. He had an amazing ability to control the silences, bringing the orchestra from the terrifying funeral march down to silence before bringing in the strings from nowhere. A huge undertaking, especially when visually faced with such a huge force.”

Bethany Nichol

“This performance brought the score to life, much aided by the ensemble’s sensitivity towards balance of dynamics and a clear sense of contrast between themes. Monteith’s interpretation of the score resulted in a highly engaging performance which demonstrated a very strong sense of ensemble playing throughout.”
