The concert on the 15th May 2016 at the Nicolaus Sheraton Concert Hall in Bari
Bach’s Double Concerto with Loredana Lentini and the Eurorchestra da Camera di Bari, conducted by Francesco Lentini

[…] The pianists Lorendana Lentini and Blandine Waldmann form an unquestionably skilled duo. In exemplary style, the two talented musicians have revived Bach’s great creativity with sincere conviction, displaying the powerful content through their refined technique. They displayed the deep sentiments of the works in a fascinating way with an interesting instrumental structure. A huge and well deserved success […] Nicola Sbisà
