Panteleev in South Africa

After many successful performances in the past three years in Cape Town and the historical USA Tour in 2011, Martin Panteleev was invited to be the Principal Guest Conductor of the orchestra


Golden Muse Award 2012 for Martin Panteleev


Excellence and Ovation

Spectacular start of the symphony season of Cape Town Philharmonic lead by Maestro Panteleev. Works such as Sibelius Symphony No.2, Tchaikovsky's "Pathetique", Franck Symphony in D-Minor or Brahms "Ein Deutsches Requiem" were highly aclaimed by the public and press. 


"Panteleev's reading of Brahms's monumental score was a largely mellow even gentle conception, although certainly not losing the intensity of the dramatic highlights within the work. Orchestral playing was excellent and Panteleev captured the Brahmsian resonances faithfully. Even better was the sence of weight he engendered - not the same thing as loud, and far more difficult to achieve."
