Barbara Hannigan : a late night concert( Visual )

1 edition published in 2015 in Italian and held by 92 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

There are pianists who also conduct, and concertmasters who lead their orchestra from the violin chair. But a star soprano who coordinates a large instrumental ensemble while at the same time negotiating the trickiest coloratura singing is something entirely new. That is, until Barbara Hannigan came along to reveal this remarkable skill. "It's like walking on virgin snow," says the Canadian "artiste étoile" who teamed up at Lucerne Festival in Summer with the Mahler Chamber Orchestra. Next to conducting works by Fauré, Mozart and Rossini she performed onstage, decked out in a daring S & M-style leather bodice, Ligeti's "Mysteries of the Macabre."
