Reviews

“Italian Maestro Lorenzo Passerini conducted the Queensland Symphony Orchestra with precision, insight and passion.”
Gillian Wills, Australian Stage

Lorenzo Passerini, the 31-year- old conductor from Lombardy, is a marvel.”
Mark Pullinger, Bachtrack

Artur Ruciński est un Marcello idéal, confiant, pourvu d’une très belle voix et d’une belle projection.
Xavier Pujol, Opera Online 

The great triumph of the evening was Lorenzo Passerini. The conductor of Lombardy origin (born in 1991), at the helm of a remarkable Orchestre national de France, is intensely aware of this imaginative, quivering score, whose subtly rhythmic architecture leads the audience to the dramatic outcome we know so well. This is the young maestro’s highly acclaimed first appearance in Paris!”
François Lesueur, Concert Classic

Lorenzo Passerini paces the rhythm with ballet dancer-like movements, with an almost naive enthusiasm, but with precise discipline. The Jyväskylä Sinfonia literally hangs from the hands of its conductor, and suddenly sounds rich and abundant, as if forgetting its Nordic minimalist tendencies.”
Jemo Kettunen, Keskisuomalainen

“Conductor Lorenzo Passerini immerses his energetic awareness into the drama of Victor Hugo’s ‘Le Roi s’amuse’. Bravo Passerini! A conductor who not only reads the notes but also decodes the libretto.”
Pino De Stasio, Gazzamerlina

“The musical direction was entrusted to Maestro Lorenzo Passerini, who made a triumphant appearance at the ABAO. With great gestures and commitment from the pit, rarely seen before, the young Italian conductor made the most of a Basque Symphony Orchestra that gave a top-notch performance right from the opening prologue. Suited to the melancholic passages required by Gounod’s score, one appreciated a great job in accompanying the singers, as well as great passion and intensity in tempering and conducting a Bilbao Opera Chorus that delighted us with a remarkable performance. Thrilled to contemplate his successful work from the pit of the Euskalduna and, having witnessed his triumph in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria last May with Lucia di Lammermoor, from these pages I dare predict a very promising future for this young conductor”
José Nogueira, PRÓ OPERA

“Concerning the musical texture, which is without a doubt of key importance to opera theater, the conducting of Maestro Lorenzo Passerini is particularly exquisite, captivating and vigorous. He is able to emphasize the dramatic situations with a firm gesture, when the baton seems to throw slashes to wound the soul – during the execution of the symphony or when the uproar of “Guerra! Guerra!” invades the scene – and then he can accompany the whole orchestra with the broad, gentle movements of the arms. The young conductor shows the ability to assess the weight of the orchestra in relation to the singing, which is supported by a polychromatic concertation that overcomes the performing difficulties of Bellini’s score. This ensures incisiveness, a good choice of tempo and a balanced connection between the orchestral pit and the stage. The Orchestra Massimo shows its excellent condition, perfectly adhering to the gesture that animates the podium.”
Norma Giuca
