. . . [it proved] fitting that Esa-Pekka Salonen and the Los Angeles Philharmonic were chosen to present “Orango” to the world. The precision, the theatricality and the deep feeling for the music displayed at the Walt Disney Concert Hall suggested a real understanding of [the score] . . . In Salonen’s hands, these 40 minutes felt not like an afterthought or fragment, but like the opening salvo of something significant . . . a short, gripping curtain-raiser . . . The tenors Michael Fabiano and Timur Bekbosunov were outstanding among a strong ensemble cast, and Eugene Brancoveanu was amusing in the truncated title role . . . [a] thrilling performance . . .
– Concert Review / James C. Taylor, Opera (London) / 01. March 2012
