Sophisticated conductor, has a technical confidence and a true depth that manage to marshall the orchestra; in his conduction there is the right relationship with the stage, the capability of seconding the voices, and the balance of the timing, in order to draw the great musical architectures, the dramatic tension of both the colors and the phrasing, the proper definition of any atmosphere.
(Arrigo Quattrocchi - IL MANIFESTO - Semiramide, Rossini)
Filippo Maria Bressan, aside from being a perfect musician, is a wonderful conductor too: he caresses the air with his hands, as if he feared to disturb the enchantments coming out from his musicians. Transparence, as a moral criterion, lifts up Bressan's reading.
(Stefano Ragni - LA NAZIONE - Stravinsky Symphony of Psalms, Brahms Symphony n.1)
A fluid and precise performance at one time, magnified by the gesture of the conductor Filippo Maria Bressan. Lucidity, precision, monitored force, charisma of rare workmanship : these are the traits of this kind of "Magus Musicae", which all have responded with attention and convinced participation. Long, hearty and touched applause.
(Marco Maria Tosolini - IL GAZZETTINO - Johannes Passion, Bach)
