This is what a Prague critic wrote about Talmon's performance with
Prague Radio Symphony:
"... The concert opened with the enchanting overture to
Gioacchino Rossini’s opera The Thieving Magpie, whose music
acquired great temperament under the conductor’s original
"... The programme after the interval featured Johannes
Brahms’s Symphony No. 4, which Amos Talmon captured with
remarkable expressivity. There was much about his conception which
could be described as wholly original: the first movement with its
"unassuming" opening, gradually building up to a climax,
and ending with a drawn-out ritardando in the last few bars; the
uncommonly freely conceived second movement; then the sharp
contrast of the brisk scherzo; and again the deftly graduated
final movement. In many instances we were aware of unusual
ritardandos, caesura and similar devices. The orchestra, inspired
by the conductor’s unrivalled gesture, accommodated his wishes
and gave a convincing performance, conveying the maestro’s
atypical musical ideas, both in the Rossini, and the Brahms."
Here are some excerpts from a write up concerning Talmon's recent
concert in Mexico:
"His hard work paid off, the Israeli's work was recognized at
the end by the musicians who never ceased to applaud and stomp the
"As the audience applauded him warmly, Talmon shook hands
with many in the orchestra, which showed the good understanding
between the director and musicians."
About Morning, Noon and Evening in Vienna:
Talmon firmly grasped the reins of the orchestra. He managed to
express the Viennese touch while emphatically
"Italienating" with refinement, cleanliness and
exactness of time.
"Symphony No. 8 by Franz Schubert, also had a very beautiful
performance. The guest director cultivated the development of the
"Unfinished Symphony" most intelligently in his
interpretation. With his unique style he reinforced the clarity
between the orchestral music sections and reduced the strength of
the brass allowing the strings which sounded compact and potent to
be present at all times."
"After the intermission one was able to enjoy a very fine
performance achieved in the musical discourse of the Symphony in d
minor by César Franck.
An energetic brass section, a profound (heart touching) string and
woodwind section all united in contrasting harmony towards the
construction of the great sweeping final climax."
