Prokofiev

Love for Three Oranges at the Staatstheater Kassel, March 2016:
The singers and the orchestra were most convincing, masterfully conducted by Patrik Ringborg. ... The soundtrack created by general music director Patrik Ringborg and the State Orchestra is at least as impressive as the action on stage. Rhythmically exceedingly succinct, polychromatic and sch äußerst prägnant, vielfarbig and now and again in (dynamically) controlled ecstasy the orchestra moves the story forward, even leaving an ear worm behind with the famous march theme. Warren-hearted acclaim in the sold-out opera house.
The singers at least are left with opportunities to shape their musical parts, particularly since general music director Patrik Ringborg with the ideally disposed State Orchestra delivers all varieties of the called-for musical fireworks in a downright immaculate way, thus creating a sound carpet, no, a sound structure as a foundation therefore.
The members of the orchestra under Patrik Ringborg acquit themselves very well, as do all performers. The colourfulness of the music, which sometimes isn't transparent, show a chambermusic-like facture. It is wonderful to hear all the combination of the many instruments!
Was für eine Dynamik der Musik! Mit ihrem Rhythmus ist in dieser großartigen Inszenierung jede Geste, jede Gruppierung auf der Bühne verschmolzen. Am Sonnabend hatte Sergej Prokofjews Werk Die Liebe zu den drei Orangen im Opernhaus Premiere. Die Stimmen der Sänger sind voller Kraft. Das Orchester unter Leitung von Patrik Ringborg meistert das dramatische Werk mit seinen rasanten Wechseln und vielen tonmalerischen Elementen grandios.
Geschärft wird er durch GMD Patrik Ringborgs präzisen Zugriff auf die farbenreiche Musik, angeführt vom typisch ungemütlichen und unwiderstehlichen Prokofjewschen Marsch, der die lustigen Masken auch immer wieder sanft, aber bestimmt in Fratzen verwandelt.
