Some comments from the press

‘The conductor Roderick Dunk showed an instinctive feel for the music, shaping the tunes with real insight’

‘Dunk possesses a clear authoritative beat, has a precise ear for balance and texture and secures crisp and polished ensemble. He captured the mood changes of Copland’s Rodeo to perfection’

 

Adrian Smith, Huddersfield Examiner (Hallé)

‘He obtained nicely shaped phrasing in Ponchielli’s Dance Of The Hours and in Stravinsky’s Firebird Suite, Dunk obtained a very impressive pianissimo at the end of the Lullaby, which made the huge sounds of the Finale all the more impressive’

 

Robert Beale, Manchester Evening News (Hallé)

‘Conductor Roderick Dunk managed to exercise an impeccable judgment of balance throughout’

 

Robin Leonard, Birmingham Post (CBSO)

‘Conductor Roderick Dunk was truly wonderful. He introduced the pieces of music explaining their origins and importance to their period, with knowledge, wit and humour. The audience was enjoying the evening so much that Dunk and the CBSO were not allowed to leave the stage until they had performed two encores’

 

Diane Parkes, Birmingham Evening Mail (CBSO)

‘With Dunk in charge, audiences on the tour will readily understand the reasons for Carmen’s eternal appeal’
