Svetoslav Borisov conducted with passion and a clear instinct for all the subtleties of the score and also for all its dramatic culminations, especially in the triumphal march with its brilliant brass.
(Herbert Henning – Orpheus)
Svetoslav Borisov found a compelling balance between dramatic energy and lyricism. He knows what dangers to avoid in Gounod and French romanticism. And with him these romantic passages sound deeply felt and just right. The premiere public thanked everyone with enthusiastic rhythmic applause for a great night at the opera.
(Jü rgen Gahre – Opernglas)
The Neue Philharmonie Westfalen with Svetoslav Borisov is pure pleasure. It is a delight to hear Kalmán’s melodies without added sugar. Borisov gives them tempo, drive and space and just a touch of sentiment and melancholy.
(Thomas Hilgemeier, Theater)
