Enrico Onofri

We are glad to announce that Enrico Onofri has been appointed associate conductor of the Orchestre National d'Auvergne, forming a trio of conductors with principal conductor Thomas Zehetmair and the other associate conductor Christian Zacharias.
Onofri will enrich the orchestra with his refined experience in the field of baroque music and historically informed interpretation, but it's good to remember that in recent years he has dedicated himself with excellent results to the symphonic repertoire of the classical and romantic periods, so much so that he was appointed principal conductor of the Filarmonica Toscanini of Parma and principal guest conductor of the Haydn Philharmonie of Eisenstadt (Austria).
 
 His latest discographic awards:
- Diapason d'or de l'année 2020 for "Into Nature" CD
- Diapason d'or for "Seicento" CD
- Choc! Classica for "Seicento" CD

ANDREA LUCCHESINI 3rd Schubert CD review

Andrea Lucchesini aurait tort de nous laisser orphelins d’autres Schubert qu’il pourrait nous donner,Au bout de la nuit
 
DISQUE DU JOUR
Au bout de la nuit
La Sonate "Fantaisie" de Schubert ? Tout un monde à demi effacé, un imaginaire sonore singulier, sonate des ombres dont le caractère fantasque transparaît même derrière l’anodin ländler qui lui sert de Menuet. Ici, les accords murmurés dans le fond du clavier donnent le ton dès la premiè...

Lucchesini's Schubert among the most interesting recordings of 2020

For some musicologists interviewed by Fonoforum, Andrea Lucchesini's Schubert is among the most interesting recordings of 2020

Fonoforum, January 2021, by Matthias Kornemann:„Lucchesinis Schubert-Spiel ist von einer fast altmeisterlichen Gelassenheit und stehtmit seiner nobel untertreibenden Gestaltungskraft ziemlich einsam  

(Lucchesini's Schubert playing is of an almost old-masterly composure and stands quite alone with its nobly understated creative power.)

Andrea Lucchesini signe ici un superbe CD ; il vient se placer parmi les plus éloquents témoignages schubertiens de notre temps. Le troisième volume est attendu avec une patiente impatience” Crescendo Magazine April 2020

Jaume Santonja

Jaume Santonja has been appointed Associated Conductor of the Euskadiko Orkestra. The announcement was made on October 8th in San Sebastian.
Since 2018 Santonja is also Assistant Conductor of the City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestra (CBSO).

I and the Euskadiko Orkestra are so proud to have this amazingly talented and brilliant conductor and musician as our Conductor in Association. We are looking forward to his personal projects as director as well as his close contact and work with me personally. What a joy to have him in our family!– said the MD Robert Trevino

I sincerely believe that the future of the Orchestras lies in establishing professional relationships that go beyond mere occasional collaborations – declared Jaume Santonja - It is important and necessary to create more intense artistic links between musicians, conductors, soloists etc. There must be trust and an exchange of knowledge from all sides in order to achieve maximum result. I am very happy and grateful to Euskadiko Orchestra and its MD Robert Trevino for opening their doors to me and trusting my figure. May we be creative and flexible for the good of music and its dissemination to society. I am very excited.”
