Dmitri Liss let his wonderful orchestral soloists play and show their expertise, with the audience loving the first-class oboe, violin and trumpet soloists. The orchestra’s string section led the famous Ural sound, which under Mr. Liss’ baton was a great success.

Liss had a modest demeanor, with a sensitive smile betraying a subtle yet irresistible charisma. (…) Then he brought the orchestra to a whirling crescendo practically from his seat. In the second half was Antonín Dvořák’s New World Symphony, which Liss filled with a long flowing breath.

[T]he very first rise of the violins already demonstrated the sophistication of Liss’s approach with multifarious dynamic colours. (...) Liss gave us an interpretation that was both very melancholy and very dramatic, enthralling as in the violin concerto with dynamic variation, fine balance and above all with Russian character, that the orchestra transported us in a flawless interpretation, urgent and convincing.

Dmitry Liss‘ control, awareness, diligence and inspiration (…) are nothing less than discoveries, his sparkling debut in Bologna with a response of the highest level from the orchestra and choir.

Conductor Dmitri Liss, a concentration of passion in front of the orchestra, led an ensemble, which can effortlessly keep pace with the big names in the music industry. (...) One will not forget this glowing sound, this dynamic range, this wholly committed music-making in a hurry.
Generalanzeiger Bonn, Ulrich Bumann, 22/9/13
Liss allowed the musicians to articulate the questioning, plaintive, floundering figures of the rugged main movement in a manner that was vivid, fierce and full of sound, and at the same time tender. The music had all the fervour but was completely free from pompousness and pose.
