Praise for Hannah von Wiehler’s debut at Opera Holland Park, conducting Eugene Onegin:

[Von Wiehler’s] “guidance and handling of the singers is impressive. She is also particularly good at pacing the dramatic climaxes. And the Letter Scene was just gorgeous, a triumph for both her and Lucy Anderson.”

The Arts Desk

“von Wiehler brought a vivid sense of energy to the performance. Her speeds were not too fast, yet she and the orchestra conveyed a sense of energy and impulse. This was young person’s music, lithe and lively, and full of lovely detail. The City of London Sinfonia clearly responded to Von Wiehler’s direction…”

Planet Hugill

…”hits the spot every time under Hannah von Wiehler’s clear, incisive baton.”
Susan Elkin Reviews

“By keeping a tight rein on Tchaikovky’s lush score, she was able to properly shape the musical progression of the all-important letter scene.”

Art Muse London

“A brilliantly-minded and visionary young conductor of immense promise and talent, deeply musical and with a clear and accomplished technique.”
Jessica Cottis


“Although her interests extend far beyond the Russian sphere, it is clearly some of the music von Wiehler knows and loves best. She came into her own in the Tchaikovsky, demonstrating a nuanced knowledge of the score and a great depth of musicality.”
