Notes & Reviews:

"To understand Dutoit's gift, you have only to watch him lead an orchestra. Animated by the music, his conducting technique is perhaps the most graceful among living conductors. His gestural vocabulary is elegant, expressive, [and] energetic yet tasteful, the perfect visual correlative of the music his orchestra plays. His long, thin arms swirl in seamless semaphore movements, he sways like a willow tree, rising and falling like a cresting wave. He beats time with his left foot, but the rest of his body language is balletic, with the lithe grace of a man half his age. When he walks off the stage he regains his Apollonian composure, but no one would deny they were lucky to have seen him." -Philip Anson-La Scena Musicale
