“Music from the Sphinx is a humorous reaction to the famous quote from Arturo Toscanini: ‘I will die before getting to understand women and the intonation of the double basses.’ As a woman and a double bassist, that must make me doubly difficult to understand! I must indeed be a sphinx. My musical journey has been to arrange, adapt and bring to life a range of repertoire that responds to Toscanini by turning the unknowable into the approachable.”

Valentina returns for her second recital in the Fidelio series, this time accompanied by Alessandro Viale at the piano.
