Gloria" di Cilea
Teatro Lirico, Cagliari

“Francesco Cilluffo, who like no other conductor today has the knack for operatic rarities and the skills to bring them to light with culture and music sensitivity, finds that perfect balance between theatrical emphasis and precious orchestral details that is the only key - today - to give justice to this kind of operas. "

(Nicola Cattò, Rivista Musica)

Opera Lombardia

“The musical direction of Francesco Cilluffo was excellent: vibrant in the most vigorous orchestral moments, but never pompous or loud for its own sake, it also soars in a refined sustain of the singing during the most melodic moments "

(Corriere della Sera)

Grange Festival

“Conducted by the exceptional Francesco Cilluffo, Christopher Luscombe's production for The Grange Festival succeeds beyond any possible expectations. [...] The achievement of the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under Cilluffo’s taut direction is another prime reason for the show’s success: the score’s busy interior life is revealed with loving insight. [...] The famous ensembles, meanwhile, are breathtaking in their accuracy and élan"

(Financial Times)

“Providing the icing on the cake was the Bournemouth Symphony Orchestra under the baton of Francesco Cilluffo, the playing taut and expressive, tempi perfectly judged. "

(Dominic Lowe, Bachtrack)

Requiem di Mozart, Torino
