Conductor Ensemble Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Gramophone Magazine
Mark Wigglesworth has performed the Tenth regularly since a BBC Symphony Orchestra concert in 1991 brought him wide attention...This live Melbourne performance...[is] consistent with a vision of the piece that was clear and distinctive over two decades ago...if there is a Wigglesworth sound, the Melbourne orchestra are well schooled in it.

International Record Review
Tempos in the first, third and fifth movements are slightly more deliberate than you might expect...The first scherzo takes off at a cracking pace here, a notch too fast for its executants to manage...A firm, purposeful reading then, of more than local interest.

MusicWeb International, December 2012
The Australian orchestra play with an aching beauty of line and an implacable weight that's deeply affecting...Good - very good - in parts, but not the penetrating performance I'd hoped for.
