Hello everyone! This is my first orchestral work. 

It is a symphonic journey through the life of St. Miniato, commissioned for the 1000th birthday of the Abbey of San Miniato in Florence.
Miniato was an Armenian prince who was denounced as a Christian after becoming a hermit. Beheaded in the presence of the Emperor, he is alleged to have picked up his head, crossed the Arno and walked up the hill of Mons Florentinus to his hermitage/the place where the church was built.

 The audio is taken directly from the camera, hence the not-so-good quality.

  • Masterpiece.

    This is a fantasia for piano a orchestra, not mine, LOL

    Standing ovation, really stunning

  • Congratulations Filippo on your commission and an excellent piece of music.

    Good large group live performances are golden opportunities for composers, in order to take full advantage of that for your next one you should consider making a small investment in a better recording set-up; it's easy to do these days and well worth the trouble.

  • Oh! Thank you so much!  I'll listen to yours as soon as I have time!
