Each of Barbara Hannigan’s performances is a moment of staggering intensity, heightened by this soprano’s charisma and deep sensitivity. A specialist of the contemporary repertoire, she will introduce us to In the half-light by Canadian composer Zosha Di Castri, a work she premiered in 2022. Rafael Payare will also conduct Bruckner’s luminous “Romantic” Symphony, whose impassioned surges reach their apex in a sublime coda.
