Winner of the
2017 Best Classical Performance Award
"...Predrag Gosta takes a renegade tact, dusting off obscure scores and... finding life in them."
"...Clean singing from the choir, and impeccable work from the 13-piece band... Predrag Gosta shows good musical instincts, and, unlike some period performers, you feel he’s willing to depart from the strict letter of the score if they lead him that way..."
"Skillfully, passionately performed… Exuberant and exactingly prepared…"
"...the most satisfying concert of this classical holiday season — a model for how to do it..."
The Atlanta Journal-Constitution (USA)
"...Dirigent Predrag Gosta dirigiert Mozarts Frühwerk leichtfüssig und so klug ausgehorcht, dass man die Ohren gar nicht tief genug in den Orchestergraben hineinstecken kann. Das Sinfonieorchester Biel Solothurn nimmt Gostas Ideen begeistert auf..."
Neue Zürcher Zeitung
"...in addition to the musical skill of Maestro Gosta, he is a talented teacher who is knowledgeable about his field. He is also a great schmoozer who is approachable and affable."
