Reviews

“Henrik Nánási, qui a notamment reçu le « Helga di oro », prix consacrant meilleur chef de l’année 2016 suite à sa direction de Macbeth à Valence avec Placido Domingo dans le rôle-titre, brille ici dans la direction de l’orchestre de l’opéra de Paris, portant une attention toute singulière aux chanteurs avec qui il communique en cherchant à créer une harmonie toute millimétrée comme le sont les déplacements en scène – presque Wilsoniens.”
Maeva Da Cruz, Bachtrack 

“The musical direction was in the hands of Henrik Nanasi, currently the music director of the Komische Oper, and he showed a great mastery of the score. This conductor is enjoying a remarkable career, one that has taken him to the main opera houses in recent years, and there are good reasons for it.”
José M. Irurzun, Seen and Heard International 

“In the pit, Henrik Nánási finds an affinity with Rossini’s score, applying texture and detail to its mesmerising beauty and bubbly charm.”
Sam Smith, Music OMH 

“Dirigé par le GMD Henrik Nánási, il montre une belle énergie, un sens des contrastes, une certaine subtilité, voire du réel raffinement à certains moments (Ach ich fühl’s…). Mais sa principale qualité, c’est la dynamique et la limpidité qui confirment le bon travail effectué par le chef sur sa formation. On ne peut que regretter son départ en fin de saison, d’autant que sur cette production, que Nánási a créée en 2012, il a fait fait preuve d’une sens du rythme, d’une précision métronomique pour être en phase avec le rythme de la vidéo. Joli travail d’artisanat d’art.”

“Conductor Henrk Nánási led with consummate style. Without ever wandering from the score, Nánási brought out details with subtly effective tempos and satisfying phrasing.”
James L. Zychowicz, Seen and Heard International
