Celebrating the pipe organ, the King of Instruments
1986 Kney organ at Saint Thomas Aquinas Chapel, University of Saint Thomas, Saint Paul, Minnesota
1596 Malamini organ at the Basilica di San Petronio [Basilica of Saint Petronio], Bologna, Italy
It had to start somewhere, even when it comes to new styles of writing for the keyboard. On our next Pipedreams broadcast, we’ll trace the art of the organ from the sixteenth to the twentieth century, from Antegnati to Ravanello, with recordings on some of the earliest playable pipe organs, solos, duets, saucy sonatas, romantic tone poems, and dramatic concertos.
Influenced by the world at large, by court, church, theatre, and concert hall, these pieces by Gabrieli and Galuppi, Bergamo and Bossi, and Casella document a remarkable and colorful artistic progression an Italian Evolution, this week on Pipedreams.
