The New York recital April 5, 2013:


I was enchanted, absolutely enchanted.

Hans's recital was so varied; so much about connecting, delighting, charming, making us laugh, filling us with awe, that I couldn't wait for more. I held my breath from one set to the next, in the thrall of his star-quality. I don't think it's too much to say that tonight was a great night for music in New York.

Margaret Juntwait, Metropolitan Opera NYC


I am writing to tell you how astonishing this recital was. It was probably the BEST recital I have ever seen in my life. Everything about his recital was superb: from Hans' thoughtful programming to his consummate musicianship and partnership with the excellent pianist Jason Wirth to his languages and communicative abilities and his personal engagement with the audience. From what I could tell afterwards, and from numerous comments on Facebook, everyone seemed to be similarly awed by this recital. Hans is a very rare talent.
