La Repubblica Milano
(Riccardo Chailly "Dirigo un' orchestra di superstar aspettando l’Attila ambientato ai giorni nostri", Luigi di Fronzo, 14.10.18)

"È l’unica super-orchestra al mondo composta da fuoriclasse, solisti di fama e membri di quartetti stellari, un po’ come se in una stessa squadra di calcio militassero Ronaldo, Messi, Iniesta, Modric e Sergio Ramos."

"It is the only super-orchestra composed of top-class players, famous soloists and members of stellar quartets, similarly as if in the same football team they would have gathered Ronaldo, Messi, Iniesta, Modric and Sergio Ramos."
