EQ Young Artist Fleur Barron gave the audience a treat when she joined Barbara and the London Symphony Orchestra on the Barbican stage for a surprise performance last month!
Performing as both soprano and conductor, Barbara and the London Symphony Orchestra delighted the audience with music by Copland, Haydn, Offenbach arr. Rosenthal and Weill arr. Elliot, before Fleur joined them for a beautiful rendition of Offenbach’s Barcarolle.
‘Hannigan stepped off the podium to join mezzo-soprano Fleur Barron in an evocative performance of the famous Barcarolle, Hannigan’s silvery soprano blending gorgeously with Barron’s plum-hued mezzo.’ Bachtrack
‘And, there was an interlude of sultry sensuousness, when mezzo-soprano Fleur Barron joined Hannigan in Hoffmann’s ‘Barcarolle’, their voices glossy and gleaming respectively – a sumptuously satisfying blend indeed.’ Seen and Heard International
Bravi Fleur and Barbara!
