“Maja Metelska mastered the Symphony both structurally and musically. She has self-confidence and authority, and rightfully so. Her Dvořák interpretation conveyed inner strength and vision.”

Johanna Tiensuu

“It was a triumph of the conductor, who directed the work to victory excellently, bringing out from our orchestra qualities seeming unattainable.”

Kazimierz Rozbicki

“Metelska conducted the orchestra with incredible energy and charisma. The music poem, inspired by Shakespeare’s work, sounded extremely dramatical and powerful. […] Changes of mood and dynamics, and interweaving rhythms, all those elements sounded perfect to the last note.”

Robert Kuliński
