2008 - Live in Genova
The several concerts played at the most prestigious theatres of Genoa during these years (including the opera theatre Carlo Felice) lead to make a CD in order to portrait our woodwind and brass orchestra playing live. Live in Genova comes from some previous recordings and it collects the most representative pieces played at our main concerts. As always it happens at our concerts, the set up repertoire includes different genres: from Gazza Ladra classical symphony, through an original band piece such as Spartacus, to Pink Floyd rock music and Jazz. Showing once again our band versatility, we hope this CD could re-create the typical atmosphere of our concerts.

2001 - Millenium Filarmonica
This 2nd release, recorded in studio in 2000, comes out as a New Millennium celebration. The CD repertoire has got its characteristic genres variety, pointing out what is representative of our woodwind and brass orchestra's true nature: band original songs. It's interesting to zero in on the comparison between the two original pieces: the more classical G. Holst "First Suite in F" (1909) and the more contemporary A. Copland "An Outdoor Overture" (1938),which shows the big potentials of this genre.

1998 - Concert of the Wind Orchestra of Filarmonica Sestrese
In 1998 the Filarmonica Sestrese Woodwind and brass Orchestra faced for the very first time a CD studio recording experience, which will be repeated both in studio and live several times. The proposed pieces on this first CD show an expressive essence of the musical activity of the past years.
