The press on “Jonny spielt auf”

Conducting the Krenek opera “Jonny spielt auf” at the Theater Vorpommern is a very fulfilling experience for me. I’m all the more pleased that my performance has also found favour in the press:

“In Stralsund, Alexander Mayer, 1st Kapellmeister of the house and deputy GMD, ensured that Krenek’s dazzling score shone in all its colourful splendour. (….) A convincing ensemble in every respect. The prerequisite, however, was Alexander Mayer, a conductor who was able to lead the choir, orchestra and soloist ensemble with visibly inspiring charisma and musical verve.”

“On the podium of the Vorpommern Philharmonic Orchestra, Alexander Mayer provided fulminant musical fire.”

(Vorpommern Magazin)


“The opera choir and the Philharmonic Orchestra of the Vorpommern Theatre were both in their interplay and in the sound optimal. Alexander Mayer conducted with a sensitive feel for this nevertheless demanding score and had the whole thing securely under control.”
