"… brings the Tonkünstler to top form"
With the Tonkünstler Orchestra Dimitri Kitaenko toured Lower Austria and conducted two concerts at Vienna's Musikverein. In Mein Bezirk Reinhard Hübl writes about a "perfect performance" of the program with Mussorgsky's Prelude to the opera Khovanshchina, Pictures at an exhibition and Songs and dances of the Death. The critic concludes: "With conductor Kitaenko one can acknowledge the importance of a maestro. He brings the Tonkünstler to top form, their sheer joy of playing gives him satisfaction. And we, the audience, experience a memorable evening."
