Nathalie Stutzmann makes world premiere in Berlin, singing and conducting a symphony orchestra at the same time

While Nathalie Stutzmann was making her conducting debut at the head of Konzerthaus Berlin symphony orchestra on June 2, conducting Schubert’s Symphony No. 4, she was asked at the last minute to jump from the podium to sing Pergolesi’s Stabat Mater with Anna Prohaska in the second part and conduct at the same time the symphony orchestra the way she does with Orfeo 55, replacing sick Philippe Jaroussky. She received a 20 minutes standing ovation from the German public thanking her for this incredible performance, which she repeated on June 3 and 4 with equal success. A world premiere in the history of classical music!
