"Spotlight op Hakkebord en Psalmenpomp"
21 September 2015
Thea Derks - Cultuurpers
Cimbalom en harmonium zijn niet meteen de eerste instrumenten waaraan je denkt bij klassieke muziek. Toch plaatst het immer avontuurlijke collectief Ludwig juist deze buitenbeentjes centraal tijdens twee concerten, op zaterdag 26 september in het AVROTROS Vrijdagconcert in Utrecht en op zondag 27-9 in het Muziekgebouw aan ’t IJ in Amsterdam.

"Barbara Hannigan celebrates birthday with a warm performance" ****
09 May 2021
Joep Stapel - NRC Handelsblad
Conducting and singing. Barbara Hannigan celebrated her fiftieth birthday in the NTR ZaterdagMatinee. She was a strong conductor, but when she also sang at the same time, it was truly exceptional. Also LUDWIG, a collective of top musicians, makes music with the same devotion. Even in an empty (due to COVID regulations) Concertgebouw the chemistry […]...
"Barbara Hannigan in the Concertgebouw, with a miracle at the end"
10 May 2021
Erik Voermans - Het Parool
Barbara Hannigan, soprano and conductor, celebrated her fiftieth birthday with a concert at the NTR ZaterdagMatinee, which was just as unforgettable as the previous times she appeared in the Concertgebouw, when she was not yet celebrating her fiftieth birthday. Since 2014, when she made her debut with the LUDWIG Orchestra, in the Great Hall, her […]...
‘Let’s all foxtrot to keep brain and body fit’
November 1, 2019, Amsterdam Zuiderkerk - The Dancing Brain
Mischa Spel – NRC Handelsblad
In ‘the Dancing Brain’, brain professor Erik Scherder explains how the grey matter works. After this everone benificially walzes and rumbas for one hour to live music played by LUDWIG’s Ballroom Band. Result: the most bizarre andamusing show in years. Ballroom dancing: who is still doing it? The foxtrot, the chachacha, the rumba? But it […]...
‘Magical nocturnal music with ensemble LUDWIG’
January 11, 2019, TivoliVredenburg Utrecht – Face of the moon
NRC Handelsblad – Joep Christenhusz
For its new production ‘Face of the moon’ music collective LUDWIG programmed a concert consisting of pure night music. “An ‘address book’ orchestra”, music collective LUDWIG was called mockingly at their foundation in 2011. Some 8 years, several jubilant reviews and a Grammy Award later, their project-orientated, hyper flexible way of working has proven itself […]...
‘The best of musical year 2017’
December 4, 2017, Amsterdam Concertgebouw - Barbara Hannigan conducts Ludwig
Volkskrant - Robert van Gijssel
“Beware, Merlijn,“ music critic Merlijn Kerkhof reminds himself upon entering the concert hall, “the collective admiration for Barbara Hannigan is showing traits of a hype.” He is on guard and ready for some critical notes. But then he falls for Barbara Hannigan completely, even more so: at the end of the concert he is totally […]...
‘The besotted audience knows: we will still be talking about this concert after fifty years’
December 4, 2017, Concertgebouw Amsterdam – Barbara Hannigan conducts Ludwig
Volkskrant – Merlijn Kerkhof
This is the third time a review appears in the Volkskrant about the collaboration of Barbara Hannigan and the Ludwig orchestra. And it is also the third time that over this review 5 stars appear. Who hoped to for once find a nice critical note about phenomenon Hannigan, the Canadian soprano who turned into a […]...
‘Partying with Ludwig’
October 4, 2013, Vredenburg Utrecht - Fridays at Vredenburg
Telegraaf (one of the 4 leading Dutch newspapers) – Thiemo Wind
The Metropole Orchestra continuing independently, the Radio Chamber Philharmonie dissolved – yes the subvention cuts truly did damage with the radio orchestras in Hilversum. But musicians didn’t accept defeat and created their own ensemble: LUDWIG. The group presented itself for the first time in the ‘Fridays at Vredenburg’ series, ironically a series presented by the […]...
