Nazanin Aghakhani:

First female conductor of Tehran Symphony Orchestra/Iran in HISTORY!


خبرانلاین: بعد از تردیدهای بسیار درباره فعالیت نازنین آقاخانی به عنوان اولین زن رهبر ارکستر سمفونیک تهران، این خبر به صورت رسمی توسط انجمن موسیقی ایران اعلام شد



Helsingin Sanomat, Finland/ 3.2.2008


 "The intense and clear conducting of young female conductor Nazanin Aghakhani had an immense enchanting effect on the whole audience and also her musicians. During the entire performance and even after, the hall was filled with the mental storm she had produced solely through her pure musicianship."

Hallandsposten, Sweden/ 2005


“...Aghakhani's controlled and restrained use of the baton, provided clear guidance to the orchestra, but she refrained from excessive gesticulations intended to excite the audience. Her well maintained contact with the soloist undoubtedly made an active contribution to the highly creditable result.”
