Guitars set the beat at the Villa Hügel
Generous applause for the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra and Soloists
It is almost always a sight for sore eyes: this time, a woman was leading the Folkwang Chamber Orchestra and setting the beat, Greek conductor Lisa Xanthopoulou, the recipient of many an international prize and award.
She has a wealth of concert experience, prizes have been bestowed on her and she has been included in the "Maestros of Tomorrow" artists' list of the Conductors' Forum of the German Music Council. No wonder one could feel her energy and precision... and that there was so much applause.
