"Under maestro Eiki Isomura, the orchestra has never sounded so focused... Down the line, this is ensemble playing of fine caliber... The OH chorus is ultra-fine, too, smooth and lustrous, which is saying something because they've been so consistently good all season. Maestro Isomura deserves our thanks."

-Houston Press, 4/12/16

 

"THIS IS THE INTIMATE COMPANY AT ITS MOST BEGUILING IN SEASONS...CASTING A SPELL THAT BEFITS ROSSINI'S DISTINCT MARVELS IN MELODY AND TEXTURE...MAESTRO EIKI ISOMURA HAS ASSEMBLED A YOUNG, NIGH-PERFECT CAST, AMAZINGLY ASSURED...EVERYTHING IS AGLOW AND NOTHING IS OVERDONE."

-HOUSTON PRESS, 2/9/16

 

"TAUT AND FRAGRANT, A WONDERFUL HOMAGE TO THE COMPOSER...TESTAMENT TO MENOTTI'S SKILL (MUSIC AND LIBRETTO) AND THE FINE PLAYING OF THE CHAMBER ORCHESTRA UNDER MAESTRO EIKI ISOMURA AND THE EXEMPLARY SWEET CAST."

- HOUSTON PRESS, 11/6/15

 

"PAGLIACCI CAME ALIVE...HARROWING, EDGE-OF-YOUR-SEAT EXCITEMENT...[OPERA IN THE HEIGHTS] SCORES A KNOCKOUT."

-HOUSTON PRESS, 9/21/15

 

"YOUNG MAESTRO EIKI ISOMURA LEADS HIS CHAMBER ORCHESTRA THROUGH BIZET'S BEGUILING, IF TRUNCATED, MELODIES WITH SEDUCTIVE EASE. THE VERDICT: BIZET'S WHITE-HOT OPERA SIZZLES AND SMOLDERS.

-HOUSTON PRESS, 3/23/15

 

"EIKI ISOMURA CONDUCTS WITH FINESSE AND THE ORCHESTRA RADIANTLY DELIVERS SOUND OF THE HIGHEST QUALITY...AN ORCHESTRAL PERFORMANCE THAT IS SUMPTUOUS AND DYNAMIC..." -

BWW OPERA WORLD, 2/8/15

 

"Eiki Isomura led a thrilling performance of this Mozart rarity. The OH orchestra sounded splendid."
