It's astonishing to see - in an ensemble composed by so many young musicians - the maturity of the approach and the perfect balance between articulation, time and dynamics.
Roberta Pedrotti | L'Ape Musicale, May 2017
Bernardini's conducting of the incredibly rich and variegated Chaconne by Kraus
got the whole audience excited and enthusiastic.
Daniele Valersi | L'Adige, August 2016
Twenty to thirty musicians under thirty years of age: they play standing up and, from the little they look at the scores, from memory. It was exciting to discover the instrumental determination and musical wisdom of the young people in Theresia.
Angelo Foletto | Classic Voice, October 2015
Bolzano is host to European Green Flagships, the jewels of a tradition that
we should not lose, such as the new small Theresia Youth Orchestra,
galvanized by the violin concert performance of Chiara Banchini.
Carla Moreni | Il Sole 24 Ore, August 2015
An orchestra able to deal with dense scores with lightness and profundity
with an expressive atmosphere close to Sturm und Drang.
Mara Lacchè | Amadeus, November 2014
The youngsters in Theresia have followed Kraus in his journey towards Romanticism, under the intelligent and powerful conducting of Claudio Astronio. The secret weapon of a youth orchestra is its gritty spirit and its ability to redline energy that gives depth to the compositions of Kraus and at the same time enables the performance of Mozart in a new, not obvious manner.
Davide Ventura | L'Adige, August 2014
This young ensemble radiates positive energy that enchants the audience,
enthusiastic about the performance.
