About

'John Axelrod first came to my attention with his mesmerising performance, together with Samuel Pisar, of a reworked Leonard Bernstein Kaddish Symphony. There's something about his conducting that cuts directly to the heart of a piece, allied to a real and profound sensitivity. He is also, though many don't realise it, one of the most quietly influential conductors working today, with many brilliant younger artists under his wing and a slew of important commissions to his name, with the likes of Wolfgang Rihm, Gabriel Prokofiev and Alexandre Desplat.'
