Joseph Wolfe is an inspired young conductor with remarkable insight. He has a wide repertoire ranging from the Baroque to the music of 21 century, all of which he conducts with great technical ability, sensitivity and passion. He has the ability to draw the most out of his players – inspiring them with his own fervour to produce totally gripping performances.

The concert was certainly not lacking in emotional heat. Colin Davis’s son, Joseph Wolfe, led the LSO in a really blazing performance of Berlioz’s Le Corsaire overture. The most intense moment came right at the end, when Wolfe made Elgar’s Sospiri burn with such tragic feeling we were all overcome.
