Jaap van Zweden may be away, but the Dallas Symphony Orchestra continues to play at the highest level. Thursday at the Meyerson, the guest conductor was John Nelson, "one of the leading interpreters of large-scale choral-orchestral works," noted Wayne Lee Gay on D magazine's FrontRow.


Nelson and the DSO found ideal expression in the Te Deum by Berlioz. "The performers (enough instrumentalists and singers to populate a small town) and the room itself (a magnificent space for works of this sort) came together beautifully," Gay said.


"Prepared by Joshua Habermann, the Dallas Symphony Chorus sounded fabulous," said Scott Cantrell in The Dallas Morning News.

Mozart's Symphony No. 39, which opened the program, was "elegant," said Gregory Sullivan Isaacs on TheaterJones. "The menuetto was the highlight."
