We were just about blown away by Max Riebl’s rendition. As a countertenor his voice was perfect for the cutting temperature portrayal and the sharp angst of Cold.
The Melbourne audience at the Australian Brandenburg Orchestra concert ‘Thomas Tallis’ England’ on Saturday night thought the same way, if the intensity and length of the applause can be taken as a measure.
The whole concert was absolutely beautiful and quite heart-opening, culminating in Vaughan Williams’ Fantasia on a theme by Thomas Tallis, another audience hot favourite, and rightly so.
