"Who knew that a Baroque-style orchestra could sound as lush as Mascagni beckons!"
-Phoenicia International Festival of the Voice (Teatro Grattacielo's 2021 performance of L'amico Fritz)
"The renowned Francisco Miranda was accompanist for the evening and matched the glorious singing with some impressive piano playing. Mr. Miranda's piano enhanced the references to natural elements, bringing out the howling of dogs, the rattling of chains, the sound of the hurdy-gurdy, the wind, the graceful linden tree, the pounding of the heart, the sound of the posthorn. The two artists succeeded admirably in creating an aural picture."
-Voce di Meche (review of Schubert's Winterreise)
"I marvel at his accuracy in including many of the important rhythms and percussive elements, which this work requires."
-Composer Alfredo Diez
"Francisco Miranda is reliable, professional, and has a very special talent when it comes down to creative solutions for orchestra reductions."
- Stefanos Koroneos (Artistic and General Director of Teatro Grattacielo)
"He is highly intelligent; I convinced myself on many occasions of his exceptional, outstanding talent for music." - Claudio Arrau
