Barbara Hannigan - Crazy Girl Crazy - Presto Classical

What strikes me about Hannigan’s performance [of the Sequenza] is its lucidity: the overall effect here is of a personality gradually warming into focus rather than disintegrating before our ears...Hannigan and Elliott play up the affinity between Berg’s jazz-inflected score and the big band sound-world of Girl Crazy so that the link (which could sound contrived on paper) comes across as entirely natural.
