Notes and Editorial Reviews

Francesca Ajossa, young and talented organist from Cagliari by the sophisticated technical and musical skills is the protagonist of this album entirely devoted to the music of the nineteenth century in Sardinia; a unique territory, so particular for its beauty and millennial history where music always occupied a prominent place. The few sources remained to witness the organ literature of the time show a unique fusion of influences of northern Italy, Lombardy and Piedmont organ school (mainly in large urban centers) with the ancient Sardinian folk tradition (passed down orally) that in the rural area outside the city consistently permeated church music. The release can also be considered as a opera omnia of the nineteenth century Sardinian Read more music (as no other handwritten or printed sources could be found). The instrument used in the recording is the Piacentini-Battani organ of 1885 in the Chiesa del Santo Sepolcro in Cagliari. Read less
