Hannah Marcinowicz – Press Comments

Wigmore Hall Recital, April 2009

The Times

‘Both are feisty spirits, and their rollicking romp through Pierre Dubois's Pièces Caractéristiques was huge fun. They also played one newish work: Giles Swayne's Leonardo's Dream, based on a snippet by Da Vinci (yes, it was in code), emerged from a misty beginning into a series of quirky cameos. Wittily crafted; brilliantly executed.’


Purcell Room Recital, January 2008 – Park Lane Group Young Artists

The Evening Standard

‘Saxophonist Hannah Marcinowicz revealed a jazzer's richness of tone and depth of feeling… her easy control of smoky balladry was balanced by moments of more pungent expression.’

The Times

‘Saxophonist Hannah Marcinowicz certainly got her fingers round the notes. This was a memorable first performance of Leonardo's Dream.

This fine team of soloists showed considerable prowess throughout, and Marcinowicz made a feisty case for the saxophone in straight classical music. If only more composers would write for it.’

The Daily Telegraph

‘…the excellent saxophonist Hannah Marcinowicz, …gorgeous tone...’


BBC Proms, Royal Albert Hall under Sir Colin Davis

The Times

‘a superb young saxophonist…’

The Evening Standard

‘a fine saxophone solo from Hannah Marcinowicz.’

The Mail on Sunday

‘the blonde saxophonist in her bright red dress who took her solo in the Vaughan-Williams (BBC Proms, 3rd September 2005) with all the aplomb of a seasoned professional…’
