The Rule-Breaking Operatic Innovator: Barbara Hannigan
On Sunday, June 23 at 2 pm, WRTI’s broadcast of The Philadelphia Orchestra In Concert features a world-renowned singer who is at home in many genres. Simon Rattle leads the Philadelphians in a program that features soprano Barbara Hannigan singing Berg’s Three Fragments from Wozzeck, and Ligeti’s Mysteries of the Macabre. While Hannigan’s repertoire includes a wide range of classical masters, she’s become especially renowned for her innovative performances of contemporary music.
The concert also includes Webern’s Passacaglia and Beethoven’s Symphony No. 6.
