Some recents reviews and comments from my last concerts in Colombia,South Africa and Mozambique- 2012
"Estimada Francesca, Ha sido para la Fundacion Nacional Batuta y para las organizaciones asociadas un verdadero privilegio y una gran oportunidad haber contado con tu presencia en estas intensas semanas de trabajo. Estamos profundamente agradecidos contigo por cuatro semanas extraordinarias para nuestros ninos y jovenes musicos de Colombia: fue un placer y un privilegio haber contado con tu carisma, generosidad, talento y extraordinaria calidad humana y artistica"Juan Antonio Cuellar - Presidente Ejecutivo Fundacion Batuta - Colombia
"The concert was a tremendous success and had the audience on the feet" Bondina Osterhoff - Stellenbosch - South Africa
"... Her Oiseau de la nuit (Vally Weigl) is a piece of music whose expressive range immediately appeals - especially in a performance like that of Canali.... Canali and Lamont in Messiaen's Le merle noir demonstrated with enthusiasm the composer's penchant for highly sensitive birdsong. In Sigfrid Karg Elert's Sonata appassionata Canali has played her heart out. Play like that illustrated her capability to exhibit the broad-ranging timbre and dynamic contrasts of her instrument. Virtuosity is no purpose to her, but rather a means." Paul Boekkooi - Johannesburg - South Africa
"For those who attended, the recital was a huge success and unconditionally appreciated as they recognizing the beauty and artistry of the performances. All commitee members were enthusiastic about the quality of the music and the excellence of the performers!" Willem Scott - Robertson - South Africa
"Desidero manifestarLe il mio sincero apprezzamento per le attivitá musicali di cui é stata protagonista a Maputo, che hanno riscosso un grande successo. Attorno a questo progetto (Orchestra di flauti di Maputo) si é creato un fortissimo entusiasmo non solo per l'alto livello del concerto ma soprattutto per la qualitá dell'attivitá didattica da Lei portata avanti. Sono convinto che tale risultato sia stato possibile non solo grazie alle sue indiscusse doti artistiche, ma anche grazie alle Sue eccellenti doti umane e di comunicazione che, in pochissimo tempo Le hanno permesso di entrare in perfetta sintonia con i musicisti mozambicani"Carlo Lo Cascio - Ambasciatore d'Italia a Maputo - Mosambique

"CANALI: FLUTE VIRTUOSO. She plays the flute with so much passion, perfectly balancing the notes. She makes the flute pop all eclectic sounds that make her arguably one of the best flutists in the world... performances were characterised by a dream like quality that froze and mesmerised the audience as well as an upbeat tempo that had a danceable fell to it. Suffice to state that the beauty of the acts lay in their ability to transpose listeners into a new dimension. Overall, Canali and Baorro combined their musical talents to produce a well polished and scintillanting performance. "
"The audiences comprising several diplomats and classical music fanatics watched in awe as Francesca blew them away with the wind instrument....It was a phenomenal performance of great artists!" THE HERALD "It was a great pleasure to enjoy your gracious presence in South Africa and to appreciate your tremendous experience and expertise as a flute virtuoso and lecturer.During your recent visit to Southern Africa you have left your indelible musical tracks. We look forward to another visit soon!" Mr. John Roos, Director of UNISA Music Foundation - University of South Africa
"Your visit to our Music Centre was an absolute highlight! The way you handled every student was so inspirational and encouraging. After these valuable lessons, the students were inspired and started to play their instruments with renewed energy. Throughout the fantastic concert that you played the evening of the 20th of April, one could sense your love for the flute as well as your passion for music. We are looking forward to your next visit!" Mr. Leon Hartshorne, Director of Hugo Lambrechts Music Centre - Parow - Cape Town
"Both the concert and the series of lessons she gave to my flute students were a great success, and thoroughly enjoyed by all. The flute students gained considerably from Ms Canali's insight and experience! The Department of Music looks forward to further such cultural occasions in the future!" Prof. John deC Hinch, Department of Music of University of Pretoria
