A woman conducts her way to the top
Bad Homburg. Lisa Xanthopoulou is the name of the new prize winner of the Bad Homburg Conducting Competition....Lisa Xanthopoulou came through against her rivals as the first woman ever in a discipline still dominated by men..... Lisa Xanthopoulou was able to realise her interpretation by making similar demands in her conducting. Sure of her objectives, with concentrated verve in method, she communicated her ideas to the orchestra and presented the works with great sensitivity and powers of expression in the short time that was allowed to her.
