Constance Hauman press reviews

"The ... audience ... was treated to one of the most original chamber concerts in recent memory. Highlighting the transitional music of these Jewish composers whose works were banned by the Nazis and largely forgotten, Miss Hauman's thought-provoking program was a brave attempt to restore a portion of this largely lost 20th-century repertoire.... Miss Hauman proves an incomparable interpreter of these difficult, challenging songs. Catching every nuance with nearly perfectly crafted phrasing, she channeled the composers, the music and the period directly to the audience with uncanny precision. From Berg's troubled musings to the toxic sexuality of Schoenberg's cabaret songs, Miss Hauman successfully resurrected the brooding end of a civilization largely invisible to us for nearly a century." [Recital of post-romantic German art song - Austrian Cultural Forum at the Austrian Embassy] — Washington Times
"If the production was acclaimed on opening night, it was largely because of a young American soprano, Constance Hauman, who was singing the role of Lulu for the first time. Not only did critics praise her handlng of the immensely taxing score, but also she injected deep poignancy into her portrayal of Lulu's fall from cruel splendor to humiliation and death." [LULU - Gronnengårds Teatret, Copenhagen] — New York Times "And then there was Constance Hauman. This woman is going to be a star - a flat prediction. She was wonderful as Ariel in Lee Hoiby's 'Tempest' last summer in Iowa, and she was even more wonderful as Zerbinetta in this fiendishly difficult version, with a sweet little coloratura soprano, ample agility and loads of personality. Ms. Hauman's heroics justified a visit to this fascinating revival all by themselves." [ARIADNE AUF NAXOS - Long Beach Opera]
