− One of today’s top orchestras

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."
