Those of us who follow Nathalie Stutzmann on facebook get updates regularly on her schedule and concert performances and reports.. and this has to be one of the best so far. I know how her conducting of Messiah has meant for me in term of building musical understanding, but it’s heart warming to read the comment just below the post as screen-captured here on the effect of her music making on others as well. Also, there’s a blog post about it in German here.

    Haha, I thought she replaced Prohaska! Absurd I know, but wishful thinking on my part nonetheless 😉 Very good, must’ve been great to hear. Cheap and efficient replacement 😀 though I’m curious what the fan is talking about regarding the masks of fear. How can we get an “easy worker” job with the Konzerthaus? Sounds pretty good 😉 especially if it comes with pension.

      you don’t like Prohaska? how come? I was much more happy that she replaced PJ for several reasons.. but primarily because i’d pay to hear her sing the alto part of Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater, and most importantly her musical phrasing would have moved me greatly in this piece. And it’s hard to say regarding how the soprano fits because sometimes it’s the balance between the two voices.. and she might sing Pergolesi differently than what you’ve heard her in before?

        it’s just one of those sings, I don’t like AP’s voice. You might be right she could be different here but I’m not holding my breath.

        Now that NS has sung Stabat Mater to such acclaim she might do it again 😉
