I met Martin Akerwall for the first time few years ago when he was my assistant for a Rossini´s “Viaggio a Reims” new production at the Royal Opera of Copenhagen. I started immediately to respect Mr. Akerwall.
After that collaboration I had again several opportunities to know him better. I saw his ballet-performances at the Royal Opera in Copenhagen; I saw some of his compositions, scores that I recommended to different orchestras as for example the Radio Symphony Orchestra of Vienna ore the Aarhus Symphony Orchestra.
Many times comparing our studies and experiences I enjoyed his large knowledge and sensitive humanity.
Mr. Akerwall own a steady and clear technique of conducting and his wide knowledge, “cultura” allow him to reach in a deep and complete way the message of an orchestral score. At the same time with his human-qualities I’ve no doubt that he can develop the best rehearsal-atmosphere, working with an orchestra. With strength I entrust him.
