The group was created in 2019 from the idea of proposing the lyric-symphonic repertoire of Maestro Giacomo Puccini through original arrangements for wind quintet.
By combining the versatility of this ensemble with other artistic forms such as acting, singing and dance, the project aims to offer the public a dynamic and engaging experience.
The members have multiple participations in Italian lyric-symphonic orchestras such as the Orchestra of the Maggio Musicale Fiorentino, the Orchestra of Tuscany, the Orchestra of the Petruzzelli Theater of Bari, the Orchestra of the Teatro di Sanremo, the Orchestra of Puccini Festival of Torre del Lago, the Archè Orchestra of Pisa, the Instrumental Chamber of the city of Prato, the Italian Symphony Orchestra and the Bucharest Philharmonic.
Although recently formed, the quintet already has several concerts and important collaborations with musical organisations of the Lucca area such as the Teatro del Giglio di Lucca, the Lucchese Music Association and the Lucca Classica Festival.
The Lucensis Quintet is made up of:
- Rossana Pansani – Flute
- Nicola Bimbi – Oboe
- Daniele Tambellini – Bassoon
- Emanuele Gaggini – Clarinet
- Massimo Marconi – Horn
