“Kraemer leads CSO in a vital, varied Handel Feast”

December 5, 2016

Nicholas Kraemer - conductor“There is no finer Haydn conductor before the public and Kraemer, likewise, infused Handel’s music with a delightful lilt and infectious energy  … Leading stylishly from the harpsichord, Kraemer elicited a performance with a consistent, engaging smile much like the ebullient English conductor himself” Chicago Classical Review.  “The brisk British maestro happens to be one of today’s most respectable Handel interpreters … His Handelfest at Symphony Center on Thursday night was another reminder that he can be as lively and stylistically savvy when playing baroque music with modern symphony orchestras as he is with period-instrument ensembles.” Chicago Tribune
