“The opening night of Bizet's opera “Les pêcheurs de perles” was enthusiastically praised. Under the direction of guest conductor Martin Wettges, soloists, chorus and orchestra were equally impressive. […] Bizet's work, often declared thankless from a scenical point of view, developed a virtual whirlpool of emotions under the direction of the young Guest Conductor [...] Wettges proved to have an expert knowledge of the score, delivering a sophisticated and emphatic display while ensuring the work's colourfulness and super-abundance of melody. Carefully and with unyielding impetus, Wettges plumbs the depths of the “Pearl Fishers”, finding an abundance of dynamic and expressive contrasts. The Philharmonic Orchestra […] provided a rich variety of sound quality in all registers. At the conclusion, the thrilled audience wildly celebrated the soloists, chorus and orchestra, as well as the spirited and competent guest conductor Martin Wettges.” (JOCHEN BERGER, Coburger Tageblatt, 7.12.10)
