"Their works landed with persuasive panache [...] aided by powerful but never overly brash conducting by Dalia Stasevska."

Stasevska is an important talent. Throughout the program, her time-keeping was rock solid, her cues impeccable, her musical understanding and commitment to these pieces unwavering.

The best was saved until last. Dalia Stasevska, the young Finnish conductor on the podium, had until this point been content to guide things with skilful modesty. Now suddenly she came alive, shaping a performance of Sibelius’s Second Symphony that had me absolutely on the edge of my seat. The sheer urgency of the music, the way it has to struggle against its own tendency to disintegration and find a path to heroic affirmation has rarely seemed so thrilling.

Stasevska’s pacing was masterly – a coiled spring of a performance to push the current uncertainties of the music world from our minds.

By the end, laurels won, the packed audience hungry for more, she had the orchestra right behind her, flying triumphant. This was an auspicious Proms debut, expectant and adrenalin-charged.

She has the real conductor’s gift of establishing pin-drop silence and total concentration in a hall filled with 5,000 people, and there’s a guilelessness and total sincerity in her conducting which is very winning.
She’s a real find, making her UK debut with an orchestra clearly having a ball.
