The NSO is on its way home, having wrapped up the final, Brazilian leg of its South America tour.
Reviews have been generally adulatory. “Eschenbach’s conducting is of an admirable clarity; his gestures are precise,” said the reviewer in El Pais of the NSO’s June 22 concert in Uruguay. My Portuguese is not up to tackling the reviews from Brazil, but anyone who wants to locate them is welcome to post them in the comments section.
Finally, the NSO has been posting occasional pictures of the tour over on their blog, for those who want a few more shots.
