"Huppert lets the orchestra breathe. He does not control the music, he lets it develop out of silence. This creates magical spaces, large fields of crystalline sounds. An almost meditative time sets the tone. Dvorák's complex work receives a noble resonance from Huppert. The dancing never sounds clumsy. The virtuosity never loses its elegance. (...) He conducted the orchestra with soft and clear movements. Huppert and the Symphoniker - it seems to fit.“

Bergische Symphoniker, Philharmonic Concert

 “The fourth symphony concert (…) presents a completely Russian program, realized by the Bergische Symphoniker under their new conductor Daniel Huppert. Huppert had already been announced with anticipatory praise, but what was then heard fulfilled the boldest expectations. Indeed, it surpassed them. (…)

The absolute homogeneity and the furor with which this bravura piece was performed, together with the usual rebelliousness of Shostakovich, showed a quantum leap in the quality of the orchestra which regularly gives concerts in Mülheim.“

Bergische Symphoniker, Opening Concert

„Huppert lets the orchestra breathe. He does not control the music, he lets it develop out of silence. This creates magical spaces, large fields of crystalline sounds. An almost meditative time sets the tone. Dvorák’s complex work receives a noble resonance from Huppert. The dancing never sounds clumsy. The virtuosity never loses its elegance. (…) Huppert took a deep breath after the last movement. He conducted the orchestra with soft and clear movements. Huppert and the Symphoniker – it seems to fit.“

Bergische Symphoniker, Opening Concert

„In the end, foot stomping, bravos and more and more listeners who couldn’t remain in their chairs and offered their standing ovations: The debut of the new General Music Director (GMD) Daniel Huppert in the main concert hall could not have gone better. (…) Harmoniously and quite naturally, the director and musicians acted together. Clear instructions from the podium brought an optimal harmony, which enthused the audience and spurred on the motivation of the orchestra. With great enthusiasm, they presented the elegiac, slightly misty-romantic mood of an early Wagner, in which Fanfare as well as sighing violins and thundering timpani had their place. Sensitively in dialogue with the virtuoso Alexander Krichel on the grand piano, the orchestra then presented Beethoven’s earliest piano concerto.“

Solinger Tagblatt

Mecklenburgisches Staatstheater „Otello“

 „(…), but to begin with we should mention the young General Music Director of Schwerin, Daniel Huppert. The new „Otello“ at the State Theatre in Schwerin belongs to him, it is his hour. From the wild storm choir at the beginning to the oppressive duet of death at the end, it is he who spins the threads and tightens them. The music tells the story here, the stage illustrates it.(…)
Schwerin thus continues with the musical-theatrical connection to the times when Klaus Tennstedt, Kurt Masur or Hartmut Haenchen swung the baton here. You have to see this „Otello“, you have to hear it!

Gerhard Müller

Mecklenburgische Staatskapelle, Symphony Concert

 „The conductor fully explored the potential of each musical movement and provided the melodic arcs with the most intimate liveliness. He animated the orchestra, which was not particularly large, to rousing power of sound and muted it to silky tenderness. It was a performance which reached the pinnacle of its maturity and received stormy applause.“

Michael Baumgartl

Schweriner Volkszeitung

Mecklenburgisches Staatstheater „La traviata“

„The outstanding feature of this open-air opera of La traviata was the musical performance of the Mecklenburgische Staatskapelle under its General Music Director Daniel Huppert. The way the conductor developed all the nuances of Verdi’s score, leaving the singers time and scope while at the same time bringing out the diversity of the music in a highly differentiated manner, was exemplary.  … The sound of the Staatskapelle was of great appeal throughout. Huppert also received the most applause in the end.“

Jürgen Feldhoff

Lübecker Stadtzeitung

Mecklenburgische Staatskapelle, Symphony Concert

„Under the direction of its General Music Director Daniel Huppert, the Mecklenburgische Staatskapelle is experiencing artistic growth, the fruits of which are becoming more and more audible. (…)

In the second part of the programme, Huppert conducted Anton Bruckner’s Symphony No. 4 in E flat major. With the same ductus as before, he presented a work with a finely chiselled inner structure, carefully elaborated, and of chamber-musical clarity. He rendered the great tutti climaxes in a warm, full sound without the thick brass armour that Bruckner is sometimes cluttered with. Instead, the conductor succeeded in unfolding Bruckner’s rich polyphony in such a way that both the development of the thematic strands and the refined intertwining of their motifs were revealed to the ear.
The result of this superb balance is a fascinating Bruckner performance.“

Michael Baumgartl

Schweriner Volkszeitung

Mecklenburgisches Staatstheater „Le nozze di Figaro“

„The evening, however, will be rounded off by conductor Daniel Huppert and the Staatskapelle. The acting young GMD brings with him a keen instinct for Mozart, for the parlando style in „Figaro“. Although Huppert occasionally draws the Allegro con spirito tempo (as in the overture) into the Allegro assai, the music-making, which is on the one hand unpretentiously generous and on the other hand melodically lingering, hits the core. And because the small ensemble in the pit is enthusiastic, flexible and precise, a fine performance can be enjoyed. Such quality is a trump card for the traditionally beautiful house of the state capital in difficult times.“
