I uken som har gått siden Oslo-Filharmonien spilte i Royal Albert Hall 29. august, har det kommet en jevn strøm av anmeldelser av konserten, både i norske og utenlandske medier.
Aftenposten fulgte orkesteret tett under turnéen, og laget denne reportasjen:
Aftenpostens anmelder Maren Ørstavik skriver: "Med voldsomme musikalske utbrudd som fikk publikum til å skvette i stolene, fikk de rystet konsertgjengerne til begeistret trampeklapp."

Richard Whitehouse i The Independent skriver: "Petrenko was steadfast in support, having commenced the programme with a scintillating rendition of the suite which Stravinsky devised in 1919 from The Firebird."
− One of today’s top orchestras
Jeffery Taylor i Daily Express skriver (om Dmitrij Sjostakovitsj' Symfoni nr. 12): "We were thrown in at the deep end with Revolutionary Petrograd as the first of four movements. Predictable but in the hands of the Oslo Philharmonic, extremely enjoyable."

Mark Pullinger i Bachtrack skriver: "The Oslo Philharmonic does fortissimo very well indeed. (...) It was all conducted with supreme confidence and utter conviction by Petrenko, often with his baton held pointing away from the orchestra, marshalling his troops expertly."
Geoff Diggines i Music Web International skriver: "From tonight’s offering the Oslo Philharmonic must be seen as one of today’s top orchestras. Every section of the suite showed off a particular orchestral resonance, from the elegance, but also grainy quality of the woodwind, to the precision of the percussion, brilliance of the brass and the diversity of the various string sections."
Sam Smith i Music OMH skriver (om Dmitrij Sjostakovitsj' Symfoni nr. 12): "In this very balanced and detailed performance by the Oslo Philharmonic under Vasily Petrenko, it was easy to engage with the piece’s strict musical credentials and to worry less about its connotations."
