Reviews

CLASSICAL VOICE NORTH AMERICA

 

“A significant part of how Weimann achieved his magic was pacing. ... The result is a sort of subtle relentlessness; listeners get the feeling of an inexorable force driving the music – and the story – forward to its preordained conclusion. When there was a rare, intentional pause (particularly the one after the death of Christ), the effect was shattering.”

“The intensity and joy, almost overwhelming. His sense of pacing was eloquent. A memorable
performance and a practical demonstration of Weimann’s deep, loving understanding of the whole.”

“It was Weimann's wizardry that glued the star turns together. At points, the 21 piece Pacific Baroque
Orchestra seemed nearly as flexible as a jazz band.”
