Contact Simone Zuccatti ›
«Mr. Zuccatti is a good example of what a complete conductor should do in front of an orchestra. He is clear and energetic and knows how to stimulate and persuade the players to achieve the sonorities he has in mind. On top of all these talents, Simone is a great human being, an amiable person, a generous colleague and a very devoted and professional young conductor, qualities that we desperately need in our world nowadays.»
m° Eduardo Diazmuñoz - Professor and Chair of Conducting, Sydney Conservatorium of Music (UNIVERSITY OF SYDNEY, australia) (2017)
