Greek discourse, instrumental melody. Lisa Xanthopoulou and the State Orchestra in a stand-out concert.
THESSALONIKI, March 2006 - Review: ANTONIS I. KONSTANTINIDIS ...We paid careful attention to the maestro from Thessaloniki at the podium, and can only convey with great enthusiasm and without any equivocation our most positive impressions. Especially accurate in her conducting, detailed in her reading, and with a proverbial and exemplary plasticity in her movement, Ms Xanthopoulou was absolute in her interpretational aspirations - and she succeeded marvelously...

"Interpretations with sensitivity and style" - Lisa Xanthopoulou at the helm of Thessaloniki State Orchestra

Plastic and masterly in her movements, without excessive dramatics, but with strength, quality and sensitivity, she reminded us of something which can, on occasion, be easily forgotten...

Musical presentations with meaning and style
THESSALONIKI, 9 June 2003 - Review: ANTONIS I. KONSTANTINIDIS ...Conductor Lisa Xanthopoulou is a prime example of an artist who, with a solid and sound educational foundation, seeks persistently and successfully to prove herself in a predominately the male-dominated endeavor which is orchestral conducting. At the same time, she is one of many young Greek artists who follow the lonely but dignified path of a European career, far from the traditional local intrigues typical of our country, be they fair or unfair, but always relatively damaging psychologically, as well as humiliating...
