Anthony Inglis has received the following reviews:
“This was never going to be an average night at the symphony, so it was a good thing WASO shipped in a far from average conductor for the occasion. But not even the brains trust at WASO would have expected English conductor Anthony Inglis to steal the show........cheery, chatty and a true showman, the celebrated British maestro held a packed concert hall in the palm of his hand........Inglis was a far cry from the stereotypical snooty and sometimes mute maestros who usually wave the baton. But this was a far from the stereotypical time at the symphony. And it was a match made in heaven.”
WEST AUSTRALIAN SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“In his Symphonia debut, conductor Inglis continually charmed the crowd with humour and musical comments. But his excellent direction of a stirring Romeo and Juliet Fantasy Overture (Tchaikovsky) and what might be the South Florida debut of Aurora by William Lloyd Webber (the late father of Broadway composer Andrew and cellist Julian) earned him the most bragging rights.
BOCA RATON SYMPHONIA
“.....immediately showed his ability with a deftly pointed and energetic performance of Hadyn's 59th symphony using a chamber-sized WSO. The strings responded especially well, turning in a warm cohesive sound. In contrast, Inglis unleashed the brass of the full-sized orchestra in a splendid reading of the Farewell music from Wagner's Die Walkure. A captivating rendition of Handel's Royal Fireworks Music completed the programme, which as a whole impressed the audience greatly with Inglis' talents.”
WORTHING SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“Anthony Inglis, one of Britain's most popular conductors, made his Bridgewater debut to tremendous acclaim. He provided five-star entertainment with the Camerata in cracking form....Right from the first triumphant notes of the Light Cavalry Overture and Stars and Stripes Forever, the audience knew they were in for a treat......Capriccio Italien provided more sublime moments.....An enchanted evening closed with a wonderfully atmospheric 1812 Overture.....The audience went home ecstatic. The Musicians must have been exhausted!”
“The BSO's rendition of the first half's music was superb; in particular I doff my cap to the dazzling trumpet soloist Peter Turnbull.........but I reserve my highest praise for the string section and Elgar's Serenade for Strings.....When I heard it shivers of pleasure ran down my neck and spine." Amusing, exhilarating, conductor Anthony Inglis truly excelled himself. I must question whether he can ever top this performance."
BOURNEMOUTH SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“.......the orchestra, under the baton of Anthony Inglis,launched into Mussorgsky's Night on A Bare Mountain. This performance was vibrant, powerful, edgy and gritty - absolutely spellbinding.”
“......and conducted by Anthony Inglis, they performed a breathtaking rendition of 'Close Encounters of The Third Kind' as well as a rousing '1812 Overture', not forgetting their performance of the Overture from Tannhauser by Wagner”
CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“Prokofiev's Peter and the Wolf.....What a clever piece this is ......constantly bluffs us all into thinking that this is little more than a bedtime story illustrated by several catchy tunes. Wrong. Under Anthony Inglis's direction, this turned out to be a most compelling tone poem in miniature."
“The audience loved his suggestion (of returning), giving Inglis and the MSO a standing ovation.”
MELBOURNE SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“A record breaking audience of 11,500 roared their approval at the end of this magical show, packed with wonderful music, great singing........It was a triumph too for the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra, conducted by the charismatic Anthony Inglis....”
CITY OF BIRMINGHAM SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA
“Charismatic Anthony Inglis, principal conductor with the NSO, was in fine form. The RLPO, too, clearly in the mood for love."
ROYAL LIVERPOOL PHILHARMONIC
“And true to form Anthony Inglis presented the cavalcade of melodies with his usual insights and conjured beautiful sounds from the BSO.”
