[…] Listening to the live performance of a score of this calibre is always a privilege. For the occasion, the Navarra Symphony Orchestra could rely on the Italian conductor Gioele Muglialdo, who demonstrated an excellent grasp of Hermann’s score, a work streaked with disquieting lyricism: the string section of the orchestra gave a first-rate performance, delivering a unique blend of sound, symbiotic with the tension of the film. […] The concert ended with a resounding applause from the audience, who, for about two hours, enjoyed a magnificent film and music of a quality comparable to many of the great 20th-century classics of the orchestral repertoire. What more to ask?
