Sara Minelli - flautist


"Sara's performance was amazing. Seriously. You so rarely hear Ferneyhough played with such character and precision"

​Igor Toroniy - Lalic, Music critic, London Contemporary Music Festival


“It's very easy for me to say that Sara Minelli is one of the best musicians I have had the opportunity of working with in the recent years.

She is not only a flautist with a great technique and an extraordinary command of her own instrument, but also a musician who is particularly attentive to the score she has to perform, very accurate in her interpretative choices and, last but not least, imbued with energy and passion which are absolutely out of the ordinary.

I wish all composers to have such an interpreter!”

​Alessandro Solbiati – Composer, Conservatoire “G.Verdi”, Milan, Italy


“At Sara’s recital at Pontino Festival, Sermoneta, I sincerely appreciated her dedication, competence and passion in confronting the contemporary repertoire for the flute, with a resulting execution that was truly excellent.”

​Gabriele Bonomo - Edizioni Suvini Zerboni - Milan, Italy -


“Hearing Sara perform Bouleumeta (my work for solo flute) for the first time was absolutely breathtaking. The work is very dramatic, and portrays the moment in Medea by Euripedes where she is deciding whether or not to kill her children. The intensity of Sara's performance, and the incredible attention to detail (both technical and expressive) resulted in an unforgettable performance! It was an absolute joy to work with Sara”.

​Cheryl Frances - Hoad, Composer  -


“Sara performed at the Little Missenden Festival in 2013, giving solo and duo performances of music by Debussy and - memorably - by Sciarrino. His writing for the flute is exquisite, and Sara’s playing of it showed her understanding and love of it from the inside.”

Ed McKeon – Third Ear / Little Missenden Festival
