“Lightning conductor challenges, revitalizes JPO”

(Sibelius symphony no.2)

"Arjan Tien...demonstrated his extraordinary rapport with the musicians of the Johannesburg Philharmonic. There is a unifying bond with concrete evidence that his leadership in both the technical and aesthetic levels of musicianship clearly informs listeners that an ascending line of higher inspiration is in place.... It is through his strength in musically organizational skills that A.T.  demonstrated how his layered structure of advanced musical architecture comes alive in riveting sounds, stirring the soul."

Artslink.co.za (Paul Boekkooi)

"Arjan Tien agilely guided the philharmonie zuidnederland through the genious scores. He ensured that the young singers stayed alert and supported them in an exemplary fashion."

TROUW ****

"The choir did an excellent job and the philharmonie zuidnederland, lead by Arjan Tien, left nothing to be desired."
