[...] "The LPO shines under a debutant Maestro, Sesto Quatrini, whose lightness of touch, wit and precision recalls the helcyon days of the great Vittorio Gui in this repertoire. For a moment I thought Glyndebourne's other band, the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, were in the pit, so lucid were the textures that the wind soloists shone through". [...]

[...] "The London Philarmonic, under conductor Sesto Quatrini, kept the pot nicely on the boil, and by the end, it was clear: Glyndebourne's new production is a delight". [...]

(Benjamin Poore - Operawire) [...] "Sesto Quatrini conducted the players of the LPO with a champagne-like effervescence, fizzing with comic potential from the taught opening triples and dotted rhythms of the overture, an introduction remarkable for an outstanding horn solo. Tempi were quick – another sign of the times, where producers and musicians are keen to minimize our exposure indoors to each other – but sprightly rather than hurried. Scenes segued seamlessly into one another, with the piano of Sergey Rybin picking up elegantly where Quatrini left off". [...]

[...] "In his company and U.K. debut, conductor Sesto Quatrini helped all his musicians achieve an interpretation of consistent vitality and immaculate style". [...]

(Tim Ashley - The Guardian) [...] "Sesto Quatrini conducts with considerable élan, and the London Philharmonic play for him with terrific precision. Chasing away the shadows of lockdown, it’s perfect escapism, and quite brilliantly done". [...]

[...] "Sesto Quatrini conducted the London Philharmonic Orchestra in an admirably crisp, well-paced and delicately accented account of the score". [...]

[...] "Sesto Quatrini keeps the fun bubbling along in the pit. After a year with no opera, this makes us happy to be back". [...]

[...] "Conductor Sesto Quatrini doesn't miss a trick". [...]

[...] "This was the high point of a performance in which the terrific cast worked beautifully together, under the inspiring baton of Sesto Quatrini conducting a reduced orchestra from the London Philharmonic". [...]

[...] "The whole cast sing, act and dance with great skill and hilarity, Italian conductor Sesto Quatrini gets into the spirit of the fun, and it all adds up to exactly what we need at the end to mark the end of Covid". [...]
