Gad Kadosh

When he took the podium the music seemed to flow naturally out of the orchestra; he allowed the piece to speak for itself.

Gad Kadosh


  • Conducting a triumphant festival debut

    The Jewish Chronicle, Jessica Duchen
  • “Gad Kadosh brought out the drama in the music with his brisk tempi and sensitive phrasing.”

    The Independent
  • “Gad Kadosh... conducts with sparkle, verve and a huge sense of drama, drawing a kaleidoscopic palette of timbre and tone from the consistently remarkable Longborough Festival Orchestra.
    Kadosh also allows the many wonderful vocal ensemble numbers to breathe all Verdi’s detail... and galvanises a male chorus of much personality.”

    Birmingham Post
  • “The orchestra, the Heidelberg Philharmonic, is above discussion. They just play an exhilarating, stripped down Mozart, fresh and gripping under the agile direction of the new Kapellmeister, Gad Kadosh.”

    Online Merker
  • “Kapellmeister, Gad Kadosh, conducts a living, sometimes filigree Mozart, the orchestra reflecting what was happening on stage, but also alluding to what remained unsaid.”
