… and there are more! What a treat to find this!


  1. A treat, indeed. Sounds a bit like Monteverde – i’m going to have to research him…

    It’s got the dramatic impact of opera without the sets – wish I spoke Italian so I knew what was happening.

    And yet one more wonderful orchestra I’ve never heard of…

  2. Hello! It is so nice to read your impressions. I was extremely fortunate to be on the team. For your information, the recording of Diluvio made in September 2010 the week before the live concert has been released in late September 2011 preceding a 10-concert tour in France and Brussels. It is sold on Amazon.co.uk. Reviews were mostly very positive except for one from The Guardian that I found rather narrow-minded… In every single concert the enthusiasm conveyed by the conductor and enhanced by all the musicians was fully shared with the audience. It really was like magic… More concerts ahead, hopefully near you all!

  3. Thanks for the information! I sure enjoyed the videos, and if you ever want to fill readers in on where you are and when you’ll be performing feel free to let me know — I’ll post the information here.
