Italian text

     “The cautious but animated and competent conduction of Montebello highly supported the pleasing performance of the singers. The symphony of Nabucco, the Intermezzo of “Manon Lescaut” and the Willhelm Tell” symphony granted him with a concrete appreciation, generating a genuin excitement…” (N. Sbisà, “La gazzetta del Mezzogiorno”, 8-8-2001, lyric symphonic concert starring K. Ricciarelli);


   “…extraordinary Benedetto Montebello who, conducting by heart, was able to create a both  moving and at times stirring performance…(and) recieved an ovation from the audience …”(M. Gioiosa, “Musica e scuola”, performing Beethoven’s 9th Symphony).


   “On the Podium of the firm and united orchestra, Benedetto Montebello imposed exact tempi and found always suitable colors without indulging neither in excessive exuberance nor in harmful feebleness, presenting a convincing and well-ballanced performance”.(Aldo Genua Lemene, “Operaclick”, 9-12-2005, Il barbiere di Siviglia-Verdi Theatre of S. Severo). 

  “The concert was concluded with Respighi’s Fountains and Pines of Rome…Montebello created a winning and convincing sound.  He conducted by heart those  two masterpieces with gracefull, clear and sharp technique, but above all, with great musical transport.” (Michele Gioiosa,2008).
