Notes and Editorial Reviews

"...a conductor who isn’t afraid to mold phrases and play with tempos for expressive effect. His attention to the score’s atmosphere — letting troubling inner voices dart up through the music’s grand surface, or spinning a legato line through shifting brass chords to create an almost regal flavor — made Schumann’s oft-maligned orchestration sound ingeniously fresh." - Washington Post, May 2012 - (Description of Jun Markl's conducting of Schumann's music and Schumann’s “Rhenish” symphony.)
