An excellent review of our young artists performing in ‘Hannigan’s Moveable Feast’ at Ludwigsburger Schlossfestspiele this week.
Reviews for the EQ Philharmonie Concert, May 2021
‘Stravinsky: The Rake’s Progress’ has been nominated three times at the Opus Klassik Awards 2021. The Opus Klassik is Germany’s most prestigious classical music prize and honours outstanding artists and recordings.
Regarded as Denmark’s highest classical music honour, Barbara Hannigan is the eighth singer and sixteenth conductor to be awarded the prestigious Léonie Sonning Music Prize.
The Arts Desk, June 2020“… the hours spent mentoring Hannigan’s youthful cast have clearly paid off: singing and acting are outstanding. John Taylor Ward’s Nick Shadow is splendidly creepy, nicely set against William Morgan’s wide-eyed Tom.

Reviews from the 2019 Aldeburgh Festival: “the young cast offered some knockout performances” (The Times); “Among the outstanding singers of Equilibrium are stars in the making.” (Opera Today)
Reviews from performances by EQ Young Artists at the Ojai Music Festival: “Fleur Barron, an earthy Baba the Turk in “The Rake’s Progress,” sounded like a Carmen in the making. The soprano Aphrodite Patoulidou was an entrancing soloist in Vivier’s “Lonely Child,” a head trip of a piece in a musical language both direct and mysterious. With a natural command of the stage, James Way, a tenor with a delicate voice, was a consistent scene stealer.” (The New York Times)
Reviews from the European tour of The Rake’s Progress. “They delivered the most beautiful and moving Stravinsky’s The Rake Progress I have ever heard.” – “Und das Sängerensemble war wirklich herausragend gut” – “Rake needs plenty of neoclassical punch and crispness and Hannigan and Ludwig delivered.”
