Some reviews

 “The flute…appears in all his richness when it is played by a personality like Romano Pucci, flute soloist of the orchestra of the Scala of Milan…Romano Pucci and Christina Harnisch earned great applause from the listeners.
Corriere del Ticino

Romano Pucci and Christina Harnisch “bewitched the audience with their brilliant virtuosity. The piano accompaniment was at the same time powerful, vigorous, colourful and discrete .
The dynamic range and the soft touch and modulations of the charming Italian flutist filled the listeners with enthusiasm. With elegant and varied articulations, with great breathing until the last fading pianissimo, once with double tongue technique or from forte to a mere whisper he interpreted the compositions for flute and piano
Bund Bern

Romano Pucci and Christina Harnisch…made a perfect performance. The final with a piece of Bizets “Carmen” and a “Carnevale di Venetia “ was a sparkling firework
