“I had the chanche to work in several circumstances with mdi ensemble members, and always with great satisfaction. Especially the first performance of my duet “Quodilibet” for viola and cello, which moved me. Already during the first rehearsal, everything was practically in order. Rhythms, pitches, and above all the quality of the double stops with fingered or harmonic sounds”
“(…) The interpretation you made of my AUTOTONO with M° Yoichi Sugiyama is a real unique example of efficacy, beauty and competence. I now know for the future that my imagination of “Teatro Musicale” has a natural benchmark with mdi ensemble.”
“mdi is certainly one of the most versatile and most prepared ensemble, with whom I had the opportunity to work. In addition, the fact they are young Italian musicians makes it unique. mdi is a well-established formation made up by talented soloists, who headed toward a surprisingly successful dialogue. Each member’s qualities are quite obviously gilt-edged. In fact, they add up the technical and musical abilities to the intellectual curiosity, which is essential to the development of music research.
mdi includes performers having seriously contended with the study of conducting, and for this reason the ensemble is perfectly able single-handedly to resolve the interpretation of compositions among the most complicated and the most articulated. mdi, thanks to its stubbornness and its willpower, manages to restore confidence in a country abilities; a country which does not help the research, nor considers it to be a value as regards with the musical context. We wish other young people, and other young musicians will follow that mdi model.
Thus mdi should become a serious model for them.”
