A firework of great emotions, article by Felix Röttger, Fränkische Nachrichten, 15 March 2018

"Beginning with the overture, the scenery of Susanne Hiller delighted … and the philharmonic orchestra played animatedly under the baton of Marie Jacquot. […] And when Figaro appeares to shave the old man, the pleasure is complete, because the acting on stage is perfectly synchronized with the music. The latter shines with virtuosic musical effects. It caresses the hearts of the listeners and soars to tumultuous heights, only to unravel the tangle of passions with stunning ease and wit."

"It opened with Antonio Salieri’s symphony „Il giorno onomastico”, a piece full of elegant grace, which underwent a real transformation under Jacquot’s hand. After the ouverture - like lively opening movement and the almost weightless agile larghetto, especially the finale, with its precisely framed variety of themes, gained a richness that was not to be expected from this work."

From Mozart to Michael Jackson, article by Erna Rauscher, Main-Post, 3 July 2017
"Jacquot's very decided conducting commanded the sheer impossible. She concentrated the attention and led the orchestra over a very calm Andante, in which the flutes set points of light over the pleasing minuet to a quivering fireworks display in the molto allegro. Arturo Márquez' Danzón No. 2 for orchestra was lively and dynamic. Jacquot swayed in rhythm, making big, round movements, inspiring the musicians to a rousing dance. That's when the audience opened their hearts."
Premiere of Nabucco: From the delusion of the powerful, article by Mathias Wiedemann, Main-Post, 29 January 2017

"Musically, too, this 'Nabucco' is extremely satisfying: The new First Kapellmeisterin Marie Jacquot succeeds in her first own production something like a rehabilitation of the piece. Under her energetic lead, the superbly prepared ensemble reveals just how much color, drama, poetry and depth are in the entire piece and not just in the prisoner's chorus. The orchestra plays a key role in this, with its tactful and sensitive precision."
