Suoni Antichi d'Oltralpe
* Required fields
Many think that on an organ, with 45 keys and with the first short octave, the repertoire to be played is limited to a few pieces by certain authors of our country. This recording, in addition to highlighting the organ "Francesco Pasquale D'Onofrio" of 1775 of Carunchio (CH) with its multiple sounds (one of the most beautiful instruments among those recently restored between Abruzzo and Molise – currently in operation), is the demonstration that on an ancient Italian organ it is possible to perform a vast and centuries-old organ repertoire also of composers from beyond the Alps. From here, follows the title of the digipack: "Suoni antichi d'oltralpe", a sound apparently far from a geographical point of view but which in reality is very close to Italian taste as in the compositions of J. K. Kerll (he studied with Carissimi and Frescobaldi in Rome) and J. Pachelbel who, thanks to the Viennese court, had the opportunity to know the scores of our "beautiful country", the cradle of baroque instrumental music. In addition, in this work, ample space has been given to the contrapuntal work of the Dutch J. P. Sweelinck, a little-known and little performed author on historical keyboards in Italy, precisely to highlight, through variations on secular and sacred songs, the varied and brilliant sounds of the D'Onofrio organ. To complete the European timbre range, the Chaconne by J. K. F. Fischer, a German with a French influence, and the prelude BuxWV 163 in G minor by D. Buxtehude for the Baroque repertoire of northern Germany were also performed.
