“Deserved cheers for @EvanRogister whose conducting of @goteborgsoperan’s Ring gets even better with Die Walküre. Bold enough to play with the music’s inbuilt drama and even bolder in constantly reacting to its words. Chamber music with shades of Schubert, Debussy etc.”
Andrew Mellor, OPERA NEWS

The real magician is therefore not Wotan but rather Evan Rogister and the Gothenburg Opera Orchestra. In their responsive reading, the downfall comes creeping like a monster in the fog – centimeter by centimeter, degree by degree. At the same time; it’s their dedicated seriousness which makes rainbows of blinding hope flourish in Wagner’s incomparable music.”
Sofia Nyblom, Svenska Dagbladet

“Evan Rogister and the Gothenburg Opera Orchestra triumph. The playing wonderfully encompasses intimate detail work, verve and splendorous sound, while still finely balancing the voices.”
Lennart Bromander, Aftonbladet

“Evan Rogister accentuates finely-tuned shades as he leads Gothenburg Opera’s orchestra through Die Walküre’s complex and extensive score. He does it phenomenally well and makes the orchestra play with an unusual luster.”
Magnus Haglund, Goteborgs-Posten
