REVIEWS
Conducting Debut
Het Concertgebouw Amsterdam



Het Parool
"The conducting debut of Barbara Hannigan in the Concertgebouw was nothing less than a miracle. Graceful, feminine (yes), but also clear, compelling and inviting."

"This can be added to the list of Unforgettable Moments in the Concertgebouw."

"I cannot imagine any man that could imitate her - it was a revolution in conducting."

"A stunning display of musicality."


De Volkskrant
"Hannigan has a very physical approach to singing and conducting, her abilities do not only rely on intuition but also on a solid technique."

"Hannigan's greatest merit is that everything - also the typically Stravinsky rhythmical jumps - sounds natural and never forced."


De Telegraaf
"Intensely musical, intoxicating, graceful, passionate..."

"Hannigan is an all-round musician, her whole being breathes music. With her expressive body language she could completely remain true to herself. Five stars for Hannigan!"
