Rather a good performance to conclude this Prom, Royal Northern Sinfonia and its relatively new chief conductor Dinis Sousa looking afresh at Dvořák’s ubiquitous ‘New World’ Symphony, a vibrant account, malleable, dramatic and vividly detailed; considered dynamics, too. Some fast tempos, especially for the Scherzo, with the Trio maintaining the momentum, and no lack of sensitivity, not least in the quite contrasted Largo (unfortunately cueing mood-breaking clapping). Not everything convinced, but whatever Sousa did (including observing the first-movement repeat, not keen myself) was done with musical conviction, backed to the hilt by RNS. The closing bars, majestic, then jazzy and with a well-judged diminuendo, summed up Sousa’s fiery, intense yet compassionate reading. BBC Radio 3’s live broadcast suggests that Sage Gateshead has an enviably impressive acoustic.
