The Philadelphia Orchestra, Philadelphia Kimmel Center

“In principal guest conductor debut, Nathalie Stutzmann moves into the front ranks of Philadelphia Orchestra regulars.
The formidable conductor should be of interest to anyone who cares about the future of the orchestra (…) she has terrific ideas.”
The Philadelphia Inquirer

“(…) one of the world’s most exciting conductors. She prowls the podium like a lynx (…) long may she reign.”

Orchestre de Paris, Paris Philharmonie

“Nathalie Stutzmann, aussi frondeuse que solide, (…), dirige ce qui lui plaît, et s’attaque aux chefs-d’œuvre. Et elle le fait vraiment très bien.”

Atlanta Symphony Orchestra, Atlanta Woodruff Arts Center

“What she brought was nothing short of extraordinary. (…)
The most elegant and articulate words fail to do justice to Stutzmann’s performance. She is a consummate rock star on the podium. With her precise, yet large and wild articulations, she doesn’t “conduct” so much as she seizes the full potential of every note and wrenches it loose from the silence that preceded it. The boon of that fiery summons was evident throughout the orchestra, with each section finding a new depth and life in its sound. Nowhere was this more evident than in the strings. (…) — this was a furious, passionate and gloriously transcendent sound. (…)
The Atlanta Symphony Orchestra has done right by its audience, its players and the arts community of Atlanta in hiring Nathalie Stutzmann. If last night’s performance was any indication, she will guide the ASO to new heights, revitalize its sound and recast it from a respectable purveyor of the classics to a formidable force to be reckoned with. (…)
The classical world would do well to turn its eyes and ears to Atlanta.”
