Nestlé and Salzburg Young Conductors Award

“Der dritte Kandidat, der 28-jährige Portugiese Nuno Coelho, durfte sich jedenfalls – gemeinsam mit der zum dritten mal exzellent aufgestellten Camerata Salzburg – nach Kodálys „Tänzen aus Galanta“ im Jubel baden. (...) Schon Schuberts Fünfte am Beginn ließ er delicatissimo und mit locker-tänzerischem Animo spielen, dabei mit feinem Sinn für Formgefühl und gut austarierter Klangbalance zwischen pointieren Bläsern und schön abgemischten Streichern."

Tanglewood Music Center 2017 & 2016

"The concert concluded with Stravinsky’s Symphony in Three Movements conducted by Nuno Coelho. (...) The TMC ensemble responded well to Coelho’s firm direction bringing out details of Stravinsky’s odd rhythms and diverse palate of colors."

David M. Rice, Classical Source, July 2017

"TMC conducting fellow Nuno Coelho led a smartly paced traversal of the score and drew solid playing from the orchestra." [Weill, Sieben Todsünden]

Jeremy Eichler, Boston Globe, August 2016

"Tuttle’s singing, with the able eight-member ensemble conducted by Nuno Coelho, a fellow, made it memorable." [Harvey, Offering Songs]

Leslie Kandell, The Daily Gazette, July 2016

"BSO associate principal horn Richard Sebring turned in a brilliant performance of Richard Strauss’s first horn concerto. (...) Conductor Nuno Coelho collaborated expertly with Sebring to deliver a seamless performance of this treacherous piece."

Daviel Noel Edwards, The Berkshire Eagle, July 2016

"The performance by members of the Tanglewood Music Center Orchestra led by Nuno Coelho, superbly captured the continuous timbral fluctuations of this translucent, playful yet structurally compelling work, written as the composer was transitioning from his most radically modernist period to one that integrated new techniques into a more highly accessible language. Chain 1 left one wishing that it were a longer work."

Larry Wallach, The Berkshire Review for the Arts, July 2016
