"The young Bulgarian conductor Martin Panteleev (1976) was the sensation of the evening. He conducted from memory, as the whole program, Beethoven's Seventh Symphony full of emotion and fire, with such depth of feeling that the deeply moved public could not wait to hear the second half of the concert. There Panteleev proved himself a great communicator to the soul, dynamically flexible and always alert to matching the sound of the strings and the noble winds in the appropriate balance."
