«Laconico ma vivido divisionismo timbrico»
Angelo Foletto, La Repubblica, 3 June 2012 [on Preludi diatonici in Milan]

«Die Reihe Série Jeunes in der Tonhalle ist wirklich ein Geheimtipp. […] Mit «Tre preludi diatonici» des Italieners Francesco Antonioni wagte die Pianistin sodann den Sprung in die Gegenwart. Die drei Stimmungsbilder des Henze-Schülers Antonioni verkörpern einen Typ von soft music, der problemlos in die Ohren geht, vor allem, wenn die melodischen Linien so klar aus dem flimmernden Beiwerk herausgehoben werden wie»

«The series Série Jeunes at the Tonhalle is really a secret. […] With “Tre preludi diatonici” by the Italian composer Francesco Antonioni the pianist dared a leap into the present. The three moody pieces of Henze’s pupil Antonioni embody a type of soft music, which gets easily into the ears, especially when the melodic lines are clearly raised out of the shimmering background figures»
