Barbara Hannigan's "Girl Crazy" Suite performed in Europe to great acclaim!
Her album CRAZY GIRL CRAZY wins Grammy!
In 2016 Barbara Hannigan commissioned Bill Elliott to arrange and orchestrate a suite of songs from the Gershwin musical "Girl Crazy" as a companion piece to Alban Berg's "Lulu" Suite, containing elements of 1930's atonal modernism not usually associated with Gershwin. The piece has been recorded with Orchestra Ludwig and performed throughout Europe since 2016. It appears on Barbara Hannigan's latest CD Crazy Girl Crazy which has won a Grammy in the Best Classical Solo Vocal category.
