Review – Excellent programme from the Chorus

6 December 2018 – Philip Andrews Sheffield Telegraph

On 30 November the Czech National Symphony Orchestra performed to one of the City Hall’s biggest audiences for a long time.

‘Many of them wisely stayed on for another of Sheffield Philharmonic Chorus’ excellent ‘after hours’ concerts – short programmes of unaccompanied pieces which show the choir off to their best advantage.

Under conductor Darius Battiwalla, tight and effective control of balance and dynamics were again to the fore in a fascinating programme of rarely-heard pieces by composers all influenced by Wagner.’
