Peter A, 2 years ago

The quartet provided music through a formal dinner. They played a well-chosen range of classical chamber music with great flair. And it was much enjoyed by the guests. The feedback was overwhelmingly positive.

Helen M, 2 years ago

Stefano is an excellent musician and delightful to work with. He is very communicative and easy to talk to about logistics and planning, and gives a great performance. He depped in our chamber version of Eugene Onegin on multiple occasions with ease, and we have now booked him for further touring shows as well as our next main production. - Helen, Administrator at OperaUpClose.
