The Bangkok Post

It is hard to recall another concert of the RBSO in recent times which had such cleanliness of playing throughout the ranks or such clarity of texture and tasteful phrasing. Such qualities are invariably brought out by some conductors better than others and the fact that Tsialis has conducted upward 80 orchestras worldwide was well in evidence in terms of the coll-headed experience he displayed.
Throughout Beethoven´s Symphony No. 5 Tsialis showed us all a masterclass in polished podium presence, both from the point of view of stick-technique and profound, deep musical understanding.
