Orchestra da Camera Florentina. Chiesa di Orsanmichele. Firenze

Works by Bizet, Elgar. Holst…


“ Jesús Amigo hits the nail on the head. His performance was popular with the audience. We could highlight the clarity of his interpretation and his Mediterranean sensibility, specially with the two Brittish composers. So we listened to an Elgar totally respected in his elegiac and romantic style ( sublime the Serenade´s Larghetto ) and a Holst almost Latin.”
