Colaneri "elegantly" conducts the Met's "Norma"
"Joseph Colaneri led the glorious Met Orchestra and superb chorus with, alternately, vigor and tenderness, with a grand feel for Bellini’s drama. A wildly appreciative audience offered tumultuous applause." -Robert Levine, BachTrack.com
"climactic high points in the flowing melody soared over the orchestra, elegantly conducted by Joseph Colaneri." -Anthony Tommasini, The New York Times Read full review.
"But if virtually start to finish this Norma was an aural bel-canto-ing treat—last-performances conductor, the sensitive Joseph Colaneri, gets much credit, as does, of course and always, Bellini" -David Finkle, Huffington Post
