The Project

In 2017 LUDWIG and Barbara Hannigan toured Europe together, with Alban Berg’s Lulu suite and a fantastic arrangement of George Gershwin’s music by Barbara and Bill Elliot: Crazy Girl Crazy. In the same year we recorded our first cd together in a joint collaboration of Alpha Records, Barbara Hannigan, LUDWIG and Harrison Parrott: Crazy Girl Crazy, which was awarded with a Grammy in january 2018.
