…impeccable pacing…beautifully blended…
Hansel und Gretel - Scottish Opera…can still boast high musical standards – which it certainly does under guest conductor Emmanuel Joël-Hornak, whose impeccable pacing, with beautifully blended orchestral voices and a sensitive ear for their stage counterparts, stands in the finest Kapellmeister tradition.”Financial Times
…sensitive direction…
Manon - “Add dramatic singing of the chorus and the vigorous and delicate orchestral playing under Emmanuel Joel’s sensitive direction, and you have one of the best Opera Australia productions I’ve seen in a long time.”The Australian
…an intelligent reading of the music…
Faust - “The Vector Wellington orchestra led by conductor Emmanuel Joel-Hornak gave an intelligent reading of the music, sensitive to the strengths of the singers and tuning up the volume on the big chorus pieces.”The National Business Review
…inspired, inspiriting conducting…
Thais -“Much of its success here was due to the inspired, inspiriting conducting of Emmanuel Joel, who sought out the score’s glamour, sensuality and – dare one say – spirituality.  The ENO orchestra played, for one, as if they were enjoying themselves, and they sounded marvelous.”Opera News
…lush…
Hansel und Gretel - …the resonances of Humperdinck’s music are lush as they rise evocatively from under the baton of Emmanuel Joel-Hornak.”The Stage
…almost in the league of the legendary Dimitri Mitropoulos…
Vanessa -“As with Barber’s orchestral music, Vanessa is filled with orchestral details that underline and emphasize the drama more than just being a nice tune. As such, however, it requires a strong conductor to keep the score moving and balance the orchestral components. Emmanuel Joel is such a conductor and leads a performance almost in the league of the legendary Dimitri Mitropoulos, the conductor of the world premiere at the Met in 1958.”Sunday Opera, WFOS-FM
