Reviews: BBC Prom 48, A Midsummer Night’s Dream with BBC Scottish SO/Matthias Pintscher

On Sunday 21st August 2016, FCMG performed Mendelssohn’s incidental music for Shakespeare’s A Midsummer Night’s Dream alongside the BBC Scottish Symohony Orchestra and soloists Katharine Broderick and Clara Mouriz conducted by Matthias Pintscher.

Here are some selections from the reviews.




The Arts Desk:

“Katharine Broderick projected each bright vowel and tongue-twisting consonant of “You spotted snakes”, joined by Clara Mouriz and backed with impeccable diction by the Finchley Children’s Music Group.”

Bachtrack:

“The Finchley Children’s Music Group showed us just how bright-eyed singing is done, and did so with nary a score in sight.”

The Times:

“…with rich vocal contributions from Katherine Broderick, Clara Mouriz and the Finchley Children’s Music Group”

Classical Source:

“The Finchley Children’s Music Group, singing from memory, excelled.”

The Guardian:

“It was entertainingly done, with delicate vocal standouts from soprano Katherine Broderick and mezzo Clara Mouriz, and the Finchley Children’s Music Group providing the shaded tones of the fairy troupe.”
