Guilherme Bernstein

G.Bernstein conducting at SCM

"A true masterpiece!"
Lauro Gomes, Rádio MEC, about "O Caixeiro da Taverna", Rio de Janeiro, 2018

“The enthusiasm about the talent of the youth was great (…) under the sovereign direction of Guilherme Bernstein, who brought together the individual talents into an homogeneous body of sound. (…) playing that got into ones skin. Some in the audience could hardly bear the tension and were so enthusiastic as to sometimes applaud too early.”
Neue Zeitung, Germany - February,

“Orquestra Sinfônica de Barra Mansa: a miracle beyond any review and reviewer (…) from the beginning one noticed the orchestra’s aplomb, the absence of harsh sonorities or subdued strings, the presence of woods and brass of absolute correctness (…) such playing is sure due to the work of conductor Guilherme Bernstein, expressive in his commanding gestures, choosing appropriated tempi and elaborating details and sonorities. Without an energetic conductor, inspired and demanding, such ensemble would not be going as far.”
Marcus Góes, reviewer. - December, 2008
