"charming lyricism…the music swelled forth…superb conducting by young Associate Conductor Matthew Waldren"
Mark Ronan Theatre Reviews
‘Under conductor Matthew Waldren, the City of London Sinfonia sang their way through Mascagni's score, giving the long breathed melodies life.’
Robert Hugill, Planet Hugill
"Matthew Waldren encouraged the City of London Sinfonia to deliver its contribution to the coruscating humour as well as to the sentimentality of the piece."
"The changes of mood in the musical paragraphs and the instrumental colourings which accompanied them were allowed to register without undue haste...Matthew Waldren conducted what amounted to a chamber orchestra with restraint and refinement."
