The audience was shuddering and did not hesitate to express their enthusiasm and approval. And for good reason. The meeting of a renowned conductor, Benoit Fromanger, and a flautist whom all the gratin tears, Juliette Hurel, could only make sparks. Whether with Saint-Saëns and his taste for the East, which is reflected in the famous Bacchanale, Khachaturian which leads the listener in a joyous Armenian feast or the fourth symphony of Tchaikovsky which carries the audience into the intoxication of the " forgetfulness, pleasure has traversed the spans of the jewel case. Through its performance and shared emotion, the ONL has succeeded in restoring music to its true place, a living art accessible to all.

Benoit Fromanger at the head of the Nice Philharmonic Orchestra with his precision and dynamic conducting has highlighted all the elegance, sensitivity and lyricism of the music of Spain.

It began with the Carnival Overture of Dvorak where the French director Fromanger showed the great sound potential of the orchestra as well as an indescribable variety of nuances. It was an interpretation of splendid dynamism and rhythmic accentuations, in which there was a remarkable identification between conductor and orchestra.
Finally, Tchaikovsky's Pathetic Symphony was heard, where Fromanger provided an anthology version, faithfully capturing the author's intentions. The last and heartbreaking movement was the highest point of the concert. The spectators felt touched to the tears since this part of the work is considered farewell to the life of the composer. At the end there was an overwhelming silence that made the public not applaud until they perceived that the director finished the work. It was the best concert for the closing of an exceptional season.

L'Orchestre Métropolitain dirigé par Benoit Fromanger : une expérience musicale transcendante

« C'est dans une ambiance plus que conviviale que Bizet, Ibert et Chausson nous ont été interprété à la salle Sylvain Lelièvre du collège de Maisonneuve vendredi dernier. L'Orchestre Métropolitain et le chef invité Benoît Fromanger, ont su captiver le public d'entrée de jeu, avec un son unique qui revisite ces trois compositeurs modernes. Ce qui distingue l'Orchestre Métropolitain, c'est cette impression que nous sommes liés à lui l'espace d'un concert. C'est la chaleur avec laquelle le chef nous parle des compositeurs, et sa complicité évidente avec les musiciens
C'est un final à l'apogée exceptionnelle à nous en remplir le coeur et l'âme.
Fromanger a l'art de transmettre la musique d'orchestre moderne et d'en faire tomber amoureux quiconque y prêtera oreille.»

« Il a le geste précis, un regard cinglant et une empathie évidente avec les musiciens. Benoît Fromanger est un chef étonnant, capable comme personne de mobiliser ses troupes et de leur faire donner le meilleur d'eux-mêmes. On devine, à le voir, qu'il a travaillé sous la conduite des plus grands : Kleiber, Maazel, Bernstein, Haitink, Barenboïm, Muti, Mehta … Fromanger a entamé une seconde partie de carrière de manière fulgurante; nous étions heureux et fier de vivre cela avec lui. A star is born, c'est certain! »
