Molto applaudita la direzione nitida e perfetta del giovane Daniel Kawka e la prova sicura nel ruolo di Elizabeth di Martina Serafin. Menzione per gli infiniti costumi di artisti e comparse, curati da Anna Biagiotti.

(…)Conductor Daniel Kawka settled into such a honest performance that he finally won me over with his transparent ensembles, natural pace and cleanliness. I particularly appreciate the way he embraced the orchestra’s sound – bright and flexible, as many Italian orchestras tend to produce – instead of trying to impose a Teutonic large and fat sound that would only vex them. And the house orchestra was in good shape – the brass section could be nobler, but was quite clean, the lean-sounding string sections produced liquid divisions and everybody kept animation to the last chord.

The musical leadership came from a conductor hitherto unknown to me but a man of great experience, mostly in France. Daniel Kawka had great understanding of the score and had rehearsed the music down to the last detail. The brass was powerful and exciting when required, and I had the sense that every crescendo and fortissimo had been balanced with infinite care.
I was absolutely delighted with the acoustics in the Teatro dell’Opera. The orchestral sound had weight, color, presence and the singers’ voices projected easily into the house

After a bumpy act I, conductor Daniel Kawka settled into such a honest performance that he finally won me over with his transparent ensembles, natural pace and cleanliness. I particularly appreciate the way he embraced the orchestra’s sound – bright and flexible, as many Italian orchestras tend to produce – instead of trying to impose a teutonic large and fat sound that would only vex them. And the house orchestra was in good shape – the brass section could be nobler, but was quite clean, the lean-sounding string sections produced liquid divisions and everybody kept animation to the last chord.

Daniel Kawka dà una bella lettura oggettiva e analitica (…) nel terzo atto si emoziona anche lui e crea una poetica, meravigliosa atmosfera di malinconica attesa, desolata stanchezza e infinita solitudine.

Mauro Mariani

 

Ma e stata la musica la grande protagonista dello spettacolo grazie all’ impegno di un Daniel Kawka preciso e incisivo che, dalla cele berrima Ouverture al mistico finale, ha sempre assicurato all’ esecuzione ampiezza di respiro e varieta di colori.

Apprezza anche Daniel Kawka, dirretore in meritata ascesa , che paradossalmentesa trarre vantaggiodel legato assai “italiano” del l’orchestra.

Enrico Girardi, Corriere della sera, 01 11 09

 

Il drettore e attento piu alle sfumature timbriche ed espressive, che ai contrasti. La partitura acquista cosi un tono malinconico e dolcissimo.
