Marco Romano

Above all, the evening was a triumph for Marco Romano, the organiser of the Proms, who conducted with great flair and maturity. He even had the nerve to flamboyantly direct without a score... Northern Press
Britain’s most popular soprano Lesley Garrett is big box office anywhere, but this is to reckon without the Northern Sinfonia and conductor Marco Romano, who put a glow into everything…………… Northern Press
A biting performance of a very tricky score by the orchestra under the baton of Marco Romano. Opera Magazine
He has an excellent stick technique and a fine interpretive sense. The Herald.
...a stunning performance... The Herald.
I have worked as soloist under his baton and can unreservedly recommend him as an outstanding conductor. His musical intuition and sensitivity as a partner are strikingly impressive, as is his authoritative command of an orchestra……” Piers Lane
I have watched and listened to Marco Romano conducting and rehearsing. I found his conducting impressive and sensitive. He performs with authority and commitment. Jerzy Maksymuik
...Rossini’s Silken Ladder Overture, with well co-ordinated and fizzily confident strings, horns and woodwind immaculate in their enunciation of the main theme, and a froth that guest conductor Marco Romano never allowed to go flat. Beethoven’s Eroica Symphony was a real ear-opener. Here, phrasing soared and sung, accents had cut and thrust, and Romano –conducting without a score- focused all his attention on texture, balance, dynamics and rhythmic drive. The three fast movements conveyed a thrilling sense of momentum, especially the opening Allegro con brio, and even the Funeral March moved purposefully along with a dark intensity that never resorted to dramatic excess……..

Marco Romano orchestrated a night to remember……a vivid performance, with playing consistently of the highest order... North East Press.
