CHRISTOPH KÖNIG LEADS BALTIMORE SYMPHONY IN DYNAMIC PROGRAM. Review

  • By Christoph König

“In the fresh-face department, German conductor Christoph König has a lot going for him in his Baltimore Symphony Orchestra debut this week.

He’s tall, young and handsome, attributes that count in classical music circles more than ever these days. And, on Thursday night at Meyerhoff Hall, he seemed perfectly at ease with the musicians and the audience. … …

König’s sweeping approach yielded rewards, as did his ear for inner details, especially the almost proto-minimalist repetitive motives that pop up in the symphony.

And although the BSO didn’t necessarily give the conductor the soft dynamics he signaled for — lots of crouching on the podium — enough dynamic variety nonetheless emerged to give the performance an extra kick. The orchestra’s tight articulation and bright sound proved impressive throughout.”
