“Franco Cesarini is an outstanding example of what the French describe as “musicien complet”; an excellent instrumentalist, composer and conductor embodied in one person.”

CD HIGHLIGHTView all recordings
Three original pieces – Sinfonietta No. 3 “Zwölfmalgreien Sketches”, Op. 56, Suite Siciliana, Op. 57b and Symphony No. 3 “Urban Landscapes Op.55, as well as one arrangement, Passacaglia and Fugue in C-minor BWV 582, composed and arranged by Franco Cesarini and performed by the Civica Filarmonica di Lugano under the Maestro’s direction.
“Cesarini’s masterly command of orchestration creates appealing tone colors and constantly fluctuating depths of sound. He enthralls us using the allure of instrumental voices, weaving them together before letting them resolve in atmospheres and impressions which leave a lasting impression on the individual listener.”
Maestro Bruno Amaducci,
former Guest Conductor of the Metropolitan Opera in New York,
the Opéra National de Paris, the English Chamber Orchestra and others.
