For the second week running, the BBC SSO has played like an orchestra utterly transformed. Why has the sound been so instantly arresting and synergic? How come every moment of attack has been like a bolt of lightning, everyone – audience included – on the edge of their seats? Why are there smiles of satisfaction and sheer enjoyment on the players’ faces? Easy, it’s all down the conductor.
