CD “Giovanni Picchi – Canzoni da Sonar” out now!

Concerto Scirocco, lead by dulcian and recorder player Giulia Genini, manage to project wonderful diversity of sound and maintain interest as the music flows. Solo players’ ornamentations are done with good taste, never turn the attention to themselves (…) In the final three compositions, the brass, violins, winds and continuo form a superb early Baroque ensemble (…) an illuminating release.” THE CLASSIC REVIEW, August 2020

The performance impresses with rhythmic verve, spontaneity and such a joy of splendid and varied colours that the ear can only enjoy it. Phrasing, ornamentation and, last, not least, emotions in the music are natural and testify to a deep understanding of this epoch’s music” PIZZICATO, August 2020

“La technique est assurée, la couleur séduisante, cuivres et cordes se mêlant harmonieusement” Diapason Magazine, October 2020
