HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT

Hamburg – Bartók concerto no. 2 with NDR Elbphilharmonie Orchester and Alan Gilbert
Sublime violin début in the Elbphilharmonie. Hadelich made music with the orchestra rather than upstaging it. … He told stories, mastered effortlessly all the irregular runs and allowed the cantilena to unfold the painful sweetness in which Bartok’s perspective on the state of the world is enshrined. … You could have heard a pin drop in the hall. Every single member of the audience wanted to know what the man and his violin had to say in the most delicate pianissimo.
HAMBURGER ABENDBLATT - 9 November 2020

Hamburg – Mendelssohn Concerto
There are quite a few highly talented string players with excellent technique, creative will and deep musicality out there, but to hold the audience spell-bound from the first note to the last, is something else again. Augustin Hadelich showed the enthusiastic audience in the Laeiszhalle how impressively this can happen: he played Mendelssohn's famous violin concerto at the Mendelssohn Anniversary concert of the Camerata Hamburg, with a compelling interpretation that effortlessly and naturally combines fiery passion, sensual sound and virtuosic elegance - as if there was no work and practicing involved in producing sounds of such captivating purity. He is a great musician already.
