Verdi: Aida – North Carolina Opera

In many ways the night belonged to the orchestra and chorus.  Conductor Timothy Myers was in masterful control of every phrase, bringing out the subtleties of Verdi’s score as well as the stirring drama.

Symphonic Concert – Portland Symphony Orchestra

The second half of the program was devoted to the “Firebird” Suite, in one of the finest performances I have heard by the Portland Symphony Orchestra in many years, encompassing a huge range of dynamics, startling contrasts, lyricism, tone painting and orchestral color.

Symphonic Concert – Chautauqua Symphony Orchestra

Tchaikovsky’s Symphony No. 5 is a piece many of the CSO’s players can probably play in their sleep, and Thursday’s onstage conditions were narcoleptically torpid. But from the first bars, Myers had the CSO players on their toes, shaping phrases with care and attention to detail.

...Myers found an effulgent lyricism within a tightly controlled, precisely conceived performance.  He paid great attention to releases, giving his phrases precision and shape, thus avoiding the sloppy phrasing that Tchaikovsky’s over-familiar works often receive.  Once or twice, Myers approached the threshold of fussiness but never crossed

Bizet: Carmen – Opera Africa

Maestro Timothy Myers held matters in a firm grip of authority in the pit – always keenly responsive to nuance of rhythm or phrasing, yet never losing sight of larger paragraphing and cumulative tension.  The overture was resiliently articulated, many-coloured with a Gallic sparkle and fleetness.  The Johannesburg Philharmonic Orchestra responded with much fine playing…suffice it to say that all involved portrayed the music’s pristine beauty and power.

Subscription series: North Carolina Symphony

Thursday night’s N.C. Symphony concert in Memorial Hall was entirely mainstream: Bach, Mendelssohn and Schumann.  But guest conductor Timothy Myers’ youthful verve made the familiar pieces seem fresh and alive.
…he still appears impossibly young on the podium. But once he gives the downbeat, there’s no doubt about the outcome. Nothing is exaggerated or over-interpreted; everything is precise and animated.

Orchestra concert – Castleton Festival

Associate Conductor Timothy Myers, who had deftly conducted the afternoon performance of Albert Herring, took the podium to lead Britten’s A Young Person’s Guide to the Orchestra…The winds and brass had much flair while the orchestra responded rapturously to Myers’s quiet, poised conducting.

Albert Herring – Castleton Festival

Young conductor Timothy Myers, who was also at the podium for Wolf Trap’s production of Così earlier this month, stood in for Maazel at all three performances, shaping the score confidently…  – Charles T. Downey, Washington Times

Così fan tutte – Wolf Trap

Conductor Timothy Myers led a buoyant performance that still had room for sensitive contour, as in the Act I trio, which flowed at an endearingly unhurried pace.

Così fan tutte – Wolf Trap

Timothy Myers led a generally fine performance from the pit orchestra, with especially agile playing from the paired woodwinds…It was telling that the few moments where the busy silliness stopped and Mozart’s music was allowed to stand on its own — like the end of Un aura amorosa (where Ferrando sang to Dorabella on the other side of a door) and Fiordiligi’s Per pietà — were the most captivating ones in the production.

Così fan tutte – Wolf Trap

One bright spot in this performance was the sprightly accompaniment provided by the pit orchestra under the baton of conductor Timothy A. Myers. Unhampered by the plodding stage direction, the musicians, at least, managed to have fun with Mozart’s bubbly score — including a sneaky, unscripted Wagnerian intrusion in the continuo harpsichord.

Così fan tutte – Wolf Trap

Conductor Timothy Myers led a basically breezy, yet often quite sensitive, performance (the Act 1 trio was allowed an affecting breadth).

Subscription Concert – Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra

“…the music of the Northern Lights concert filled the concert hall with waves of resounding strength, almost of triumph. When the last notes had faded, the audience rose in a standing ovation that lasted even after the conductor’s final bow.”

Candide – New England Conservatory Opera Theatre

“…musically this production is a treasure.  Conductor Timothy Myers gets the balance between the orchestra and the singers quite right, and the Bernstein songs are wonderfully rendered…”

Candide – New England Conservatory Opera Theatre

“Close your eyes and listen to the music, and ”Candide” glistens.”
