“Dausgaard himself is energetic, impassioned, easy to read and obviously intent on providing on providing as clear a musical picture as possible. He is also an excellent talker…But watching and listening confirms that, although he conducts from his heart, he has a strong intelligence guiding him. There aren’t too many conductors around today who balance those crucial values as successfully as he does.” – Gramophone Magazine
