Critical Acclaim

“The playing was moving, nuanced and gentle, not always an adjective that you think of with Wagner. If there were chamber elements in this performance, it was because of the way that Auguin led rather than drove.”
- The Washington Post

“L’interprétation était émouvante, nuancée et douce, un adjectif auquel on pense rarement avec Wagner. Si cette représentation avait des éléments de musique de chambre, c’est à cause de la manière qu’a Auguin de diriger plutôt que de conduire ».

- The Washington Post

„Die Aufführung war bewegend, nuanciert und einfühlsam – nicht unbedingt ein Adjektiv, an das man bei Wagner denkt. Wenn es bei dieser Aufführung Kammerelemente gab, so lag dies an der behutsamen Art und Weise, mit der Auguin das Geschehen leitete.“

“In the pit, the young French conductor Philippe Auguin, replacing an injured James Levine, showed all of the older maestro’s instinctive feeling for pace and sensitivity to the dramatic inflections of the individual singers.”
- Charles Michener, The New York Observer

“Dans la fosse, le jeune chef d’orchestre français Philippe Auguin, venu remplacer un James Levine blessé, a démontré qu’il possède les instincts de son aîné pour l’espacement rythmique ainsi que sa sensibilité pour les inflexions dramatiques de chaque chanteur.

- Charles Michener, The New York Observer

„Im Orchestergraben vertrat der junge französische Dirigent Philippe Auguin den verletzungsbedingt ausgefallenen James Levine. Dabei stand er dem älteren Maestro in nichts nach und zeigte das gleiche Fingerspitzengefühl für das Tempo der Musik sowie dessen einfühlsames Verständnis der dramatischen Tonfälle der einzelnen Sänger.
