"Aureliano Cattaneo is a composer full of obstinacy, versatility and imagination of sound. He has proved his talent with ​​works in various genres, ranging from string quartets to the great orchestral form to opera, and is one of the most promising representatives of his generation. " Jury of the Musikpreis Salzburg 2013

"The music is full of whispered secrets and dizzying spirals, gossamer effects and sybaritic surprises. Cattaneo has an assured sense of architecture, a feel for dramatic pace, fine aesthetic sensibilities and plenty to say." Financial Times - Shirley Apthorp
