SOME REVIEWS


L'ORIENT LE JOUR
L'intelligence des géométries musicales les plus complexes ne les a jamais conduit à une lecture purement cérébrale car leur sûreté technique leur laissait toute latitude pour imprimer aux œuvres la marque d'une sensibilitè à l'èventail très riche.

"The four saxophonist virtuosi were applauded with a standing ovation”
Wolfsburger Allgemeine

"The four musicians achieved here a sound which sounded so much better then the original instruments this music was written for. It was refreshing to hear that the music of Gabrielis was not performed with sacred "solemnity" normally associated with this composer but with the alive tempi which characterised this infectiously good concert."

Your playing of my music was wonderful . So much heart! I`ve never heard such sensitive musical playing from a quartet of four saxophones.
Joe Harnell

REPUBBLICA
...e quanto a musicalità ne hanno da vendere, e quanto a tecnica pure. Applausi nutritissimi, per noi avrebbero potuto continuare a suonare ancora e ancora.
Michelangelo Zurletti

DIE WELT
Das "Ensemble Italiano di Sassofoni" bot ein anspruchsvolles farbiges Programm, das besonders die Stilsicherheit der jungen Künstler bezüglich der Interpretation von Musik unterschiedlichster Epochen duetlich werden ließ. Die Werke im Programm wurden von den italienischen Saxophonvirtuosen geradezu hinreißend gespielt.

BERGAMO OGGI
Antonio Brena

Sostenuti da una tecnica raffinata i quattro sassofonisti pesaresi hanno saputo condurre sul filo rigoroso e convincente dell'interpretazione più genuina e spontanea un programma studiato con sapiente competenza e musicalità. Pubblico tanto sorpreso quanto soddisfatto e caloroso negli applausi.

IL MESSAGGERO
Carlo Boschi

L'Ensemble Italiano di Sassofoni ha dato prova di grande professionalità. Questo gruppo di strumentisti vanta già una notevole carriera e si pone di diritto fra i gruppi più interessanti del panorama musicale italiano, sia per l'originalità dell'organico che per l'indubbia qualità delle sue esecuzioni.

GAZZETTA DEL SUD
Roberto Messina

...un Ensemble perfetto ed assai spettacolare che sicuramente farà parlare di se.

IL TEMPO - Roma
Clara Falcone

...la corona della serata vada al sassofono, presentato dai giovani musicisti marchigiani, strumento solitamente degradato che si trasfigura in una nobiltà vocale, esprimendo una umanità piegata ad ogni trapasso sonoro pregna, di volta in volta di una propria voce, secondo il colore del tempo.

IL TEMPO Roma
Mostrano, ciascuno per sé, sicuro intuito e padronanza di strumento e assieme, comune tensione ed amalgama d'esecuzione.
