From the critics

  • “Gerts super, Santa Cecilia idem”. Orchestra dell´Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia was excellently conducted by this dynamic and communicative conductor.


  • Mihhail Gerts delivered with Orchestre Philarmonique de Radio France an interpretation of rare eloquence with ample, supple, graceful and precise gestures.


  • Mihhail Gerts and the orchestra were truly magical. Gerts had a wonderful cool and calm demeanour, the power and passion came so naturally to him with what looked like very little physical effort.

    Ben Lunn

  • …with astonishing precision, highly expressives gestures and warmth, his conducting was captivating from the first to the last note. Gerts rose completely above the technical challenges of conducting which he solved without easing up on the tension for one second.


  • Gerts impressed the crowd to such an extent, that many were left hoping for a swift re-invitation.

    Helsingin Sanomat

  • Gerts held the reins of the Orchestra dell’Accademia Nazionale di Santa Cecilia very well, proving to be an attentive connoisseur of the pieces performed, clean in his gesture and incisive as an interpreter.


  • The applause applied essentially to the conductor Mihhail Gerts, who conveyed the music of Donizetti sensitively, without neglecting the drama

    Christopf Zimmermann

  • In terms of belcanto, Gerts led the Philharmonic in the pit with precision and delicacy


  • The orchestra under Mihhail Gerts brought the highly emotional music of Donizetti brilliantly out of the pit and by doing so also inspired the acting of the singers

    Fritz Gerwinn

  • His energy and clarity impressed, contact with the orchestra was also noticeably good

    Klaus Günther

    Solinger Tageblatt
  • Under the direction of Gerts, the Georgian Chamber Orchestra played sensitively, with agility and dedication

    Jesko Schulze-Reimpell

  • Gerts knows how to conduct a big opera, has a flair for tempi and worked with the Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra in a very precise way

    Stefan Schmöe

  • Conducting a highly motivated Hagen Philharmonic Orchestra, Gerts conveyed the multifacet [of the opera], which were missing from the staging. He allowed the orchestra to explode, but the sound stayed very transparent and subtle.

    Monika Willer

  • The applause for the conductor should have, by rights, been even stronger
