"AMADEUS" for the CD of MOZART and STRAUSS (Concertos for OBOE)

Carlo Romano is the first oboe of the Orchestra Sinfonica Nazionale RAI. We really appreciate his skills as a great interpreter of this CD LIVE which is the protagonist of two scores of fine textured composition : The oboe concertos by Mozart and Strauss . Masterpieces that appear to work specifically on the musical characteristics of Carlo Romano with clarity of phrasing , refinement and purity of sound , classic elegance in expressive intentionse...M.R.Z.


....very valid interpretation by the oboist Carlo Romano, gifted by a limpid sonority and a flawless technique on the Mozart K314 Concerto...

6 concerti per Oboe di Vivaldi e Handel

...certainly not so easy concert, looking to the length and mechanism complexity of those works. Romano showed us a brilliant and quick technique, sustained by a full and intense sound. At the end, the soloist received the right standing ovation we expected, and he thanked them by performing the famous "Siciliana" by D. Cimarosa

...our orchestras often encompass many world-appreciated soloists, and in this case it is necessary to underline Carlo Romano's performance, one of the best Italian oboists and First Solo Oboe at "Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma della Rai", with whom he will perform Strauss Oboe Concerto at Foro Italico Auditorium.

Landa Ketoff (La Repubblica) the Accademia, Carlo Romano, Principal Oboe at Orchestra della Rai, proposed the difficult and virtuoso oboe concerto by R. Strauss. We acclaim romano, not only for the technical accuracy, but even for the phrasing care and more for the expression nobility, always ready to catch the smallest particular.


He too was asked to perform a bis: that was Britten.

Enrico Cavallotti (Il Tempo)

…Carlo Romano turned out as a highly talented oboist in both baroque concertos, and was able to satisfy either in musical and technical side, and moreover he showed his joy in music making.

Von Alfred Schulze (General Anzeiger) the wonderful concert-hall; oboist Carlo Romano, first time performing with the orchestra H. Beissel, is the Solo Oboe at Orchestra Sinfonica di Roma della Rai. So he is "the best of the best", as every member of a Radio Simphony Orchestra. Carlo Romano proved he is highly familiar with his ancestors' music, and showed it us in concertos by A. Marcelo, T. Albinoni and V. Bellini, seducing audience with his precise articulation, finest pianissimos and high technical ability.

Felicitas Koczik (Bonner Rundschan)

...we have to say that the difficult solo part, in the Strauss oboe concerto, was performed by Carlo Romano with absolute stylishness and mastering, gaining enthusiastic standing ovation. He gave a bis too.

Teodoro Celli (Il Messaggero)

…In the C Major Haydn Concerto we admired a virtuoso mastering, a pathetic phrase intimacy and an aristocratic logic of the accents of Carlo Romano, First Solo Oboe at the Orchestra Sinfonica della Rai, well suited in the role of acclaimed soloist.

Teodoro Celli (Il Messaggero)

…with the chamber orchestra of S. Cecilia, always precise end expressive in his musicality, shined with virtuosism and high professionalism Carlo Romano, Soloist Oboe in C Major Vivaldi Concerto.

Ennio Melchiorre (L’Unità)

…Yesterday evening the excellent Carlo Romano, artist gifted by a poethic sense and refined elegance, drove and sustained the enchanting music flowing.
