operanews- mars 2015 - David J. Baker

« The performance had ideal vitality under the conductor Laurent Pillot, who clearly relished the orchestra's important role and unleashed riveting accelerandos at critical moments  »


Opéra magazine n° 103 - David Shengold

« Laurent Pillot, qui a déjà dirigé in loco d'excellentes représentations de Béatrice et Bénédict de Berlioz, Pénélope de Fauré et Cendrillon de Massenet, tire le meilleur de l'orchestre et du choeur. »

New York Times- Dark and Deep Desires- 11 décembre 2014- Anthony Tommasini

« Drawing vibrant and colorful playing from the orchestra, the conductor Laurent Pillot was especially good at conveying the mysteriousness that pervades this overlooked score, Bloch’s only opera. » 

Berkshire Fine Arts - 11/12/14 - Susan Hall

« Conducted by Laurent Pillot, the score was vivid. Pillot evoked the atmosphere of the drama with the orchestral tools Bloch provides. […] The music and drama proceed with unrelenting power and intensity. » 

MACBETH, Ernest Bloch

Borden Auditorium / New York / Décembre 2014

« The concert that followed, performed by the European Union Youth Orchestra, under the baton of Laurent Pillot, was the best such event I can ever remember, with an eclectic mix of classical and more modern works by Percy Grainger, Charles Villiers Stanford, William Wallace and Aloys Fleischmann, as well as the more predictable Richard Wagner and of course ending with Beethoven’s “Ode to Joy”.  »

« The dynamic interaction of a live orchestra, conducted by Laurent Pillot, gives Geoff Dunbar's film a lucent additional dimension. »
