New York Concert Reviews SOLD OUT

“A phenomenal young violinist and recent prize winner, Hannah White then took the stage to blaze her way through the only true novelty of the evening,” “His work carries figurations from Bach, with important mixtures of flamenco and even Tzigane (gypsy) thrown in. White commanded every bit of the work, with perfect intonation, technique, flair, swing: in short, everything one could ask from a violinist, of any age.” SOLD OUT

“Praising talented youngsters is one thing. Actually giving them the stage is quite another. This year’s honoree was Hannah White, and she deserved the opportunity. The 16-year-old violinist clinched her Severance Hall debut, turning in a razor-sharp account of the Introduction and Rondo Capriccioso by Saint-Saens. White’s future is bright indeed” SOLD OUT

“This was a bravura performance by Hannah White, a stunning violinist who has won a drawer of awards,” “The composition was designed to be a showcase for technique, and not a profound exploration of spirituality or whatnot. However, it showed what this brilliant musician can do to good effect. I’m sure we will be hearing much more from White over the next few decades.”

“Hannah White… blazed through the technical snares”

Cornell Daily Sun

“…violinist Hannah White… rent the cloth of expectation with her incisive rendition…whose maze of sudden key changes and knuckle-busting double stops resolved into a linear path at White’s fingertips. The music itself indebted to Paganini and, by extension, Bach – was a treat to hear live and proved a studied choice on the part of its performer.

“…as amazing as it was to watch and hear Ms. White play”

Chicago Splash

“…delightful introduction… Hannah White brought smiles and chuckles to the audience… White was carried aloft, with legs crossed, by 3 male dancers, set down, handed her violin and bow and bowed to. She nodded to her attendants, instructing them to be off – and dance. … virtuosic… created a seamless, fluid work which showcased both this violin prodigy and the smooth technique of the six dancers.”

“memorable…Chineke’s sound is big and full of expression…refreshing and joyful – I’ve never heard quite so much delighted laughter at a concert such as this before.”

“skilled…It’s a hypnotic, spine-tingling performance which grips the audience…rousing the audience to a standing ovation…Again, the punchy, intense finale brings the audience to their feet.” 4.1.22
