in The Anvil - 22 June, 2012, 07:30 PM

from Email to Esa-Pekka Salonen at Philharmonia Orchestra dated 23 June 2012:

Dear Mr Salonen I was present at the performance of Mahler's Resurrection Symphony at the Anvil, Basingstoke, on June 22. I simply wanted to thank you, and the orchestra and soloists and choir, for such a magnificent performance it was hugely moving and powerful. In all my life, and I have been attending concerts for many years, I have never seen the audience give a standing ovation such as we saw last night! It was truly well deserved and an evening to be remembered for all time.
