SELECTED REVIEWS

“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.”
Het Parool

“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 Volkskrant

“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!”
De Telegraaf
