1990 - 1986

Press Notes

The synchronization between Marturet and Barbara Hendricks was another demonstration of the conductor’s talent.
El Universal, Caracas – Nov. 8, 1990

The music remained lively throughout the concert due to Marturet’s human performance.

There are concerts that remain in our memory – this one deserves to be registered in the history of the “CONCERTO” in Venezuela… Pogorelich, Marturet and the OSV, never to forget.
El Nacional, Caracas – Mar. 4, 1989

This performance under Marturet radiated warmth, was free and natural and at the same time he conducted very clearly. There was contact between the conductor, orchestra and audience. One of the highlights of the season.
Lørdag, Stavanger – Oct. 29, 1988

Here was straight-ahead, virtuosic playing that never got too carried away with itself: No fussing, no eccentric interpretation. Just Shostakovich at full throttle.
Rocky Mountain News, Denver – Jul. 15, 1988

The Venezuelan Symphony Orchestra (OSV) has endured since 1930 to become one of Venezuela’s leading symphonic orchestras. Despite the scandal that rocked the local cultural world last year, with noted Venezuelan composer and conductor Eduardo Marturet (Music Director since Nov.87) at the helm, the orchestra has survived the ordeal admirably and has regained its reputation as one of the nation’s best.
The Daily Journal, Caracas – Jun. 26, 1988

…very impressive the CD (Chopin Piano C. No. 1/Adagio Spianatto et Grande Polonaise/FIDELIO8817) Sergio Daniel Tiempo made with the Budapest Symphony Orchestra (Budapest Radio) with Eduardo Marturet as conductor. Its a miracle.
PLATEN, Amsterdam – Mar. 25, 1988

Agile guest maestro! The CJRT Festival Orchestra played along with nimble assurance.
The Toronto Star, Toronto – Mar. 22, 1988

the Gelders Orchestra under the direction of Eduardo Marturet came to excellent results. In Beethoven the orchestra reacted to Marturet’s exact beat.
Gelders Nieuwsblad, Utrecht – Mar. 14, 1988

In Gent, Het Gelders Orkest and Marturet were an excellent artistic combination. Great feeling for musical pulse in Beethoven. In Shostakovich Marturet’s energy resulted in great dynamic contrast and orchestral strength.
De Standaard, Gent – Mar. 12, 1988

In Brahms Marturet gave the orchestral parts relevance and structure with much fire. In Shostakovich the south American conductor achieved the ideal instrumental balance.
Arhemse Courant, Holland – Mar. 5, 1988

Marturet HGO conducting outstanding. The accompaniment to Beethoven’s Triple Concerto was fresh and open, thanks to an inspired conductor who knows the score really well, leading the orchestra to a brilliant and exciting finale.
Lochem Nieuwsblad, Holland – Mar. 2, 1988

In reference to new orchestras this year, the Sinfonietta Caracas was the leader. Created by Eduardo Marturet with a conception of real musical excellence.
El Nacional, Caracas – 1987

Beethoven, Triple Concerto Op. 56, Romanza in G Op. 40, Emmy Verhey – Violin, Ofra Harnoy – Cello, Karin Lechner – Piano, Brabant Orchestra, Eduardo Marturet – Conductor, RCA LC 0316. “As far as this lightness is concerned, the orchestra is a good match, altogether the orchestral part is very satisfactory. The recording is beautiful, though perhaps a bit less brilliant than the famous record with Oistrach, Rostropovich, Richter and Karajan, but very much worthwhile.”
Luister Record Magazine, Holland – Dec. 1, 1986

In Beethoven’s 5th., Marturet’s interpretation was dark and spacious (instead of bright and clear which is what one would expect from a Latin) the work sounded well delineated and balanced. The orchestra (Het Brabant Orkest) played with full dedication. It was a great success.
Brabants Dagblad, Holland – Jun. 14, 1986

A chamber orchestra (Sinfonietta Caracas) directed by Eduardo Marturet is the ensemble of its kind with best interpretative level.
Revista Imagen, Caracas – 1986

Marturet showed his judgement and musicianship all the time, taking great care of the soloist (Rostropovich/OSV) to achieve a good balance.
