Notes and Editorial Reviews

For some time now, the recording scene in and out of Italy has focused on a rediscovery of the most outstanding italian organ works composed between the 19th and the 20th centuries, now performed with philological rigor on historical instruments. This renewed interest explains the choice to dedicate a monographic recording to Polibio Fumagalli (1830-1900), a prominent figure during the second half of the 19th century, and a link between the old and the new concept of organ construction and composition in Italy. An organ teacher at the Conservatory of Milan (among his students was Marco Enrico Bossi), Fumagalli composed numerous excellent organ works, and succeeded in moving from the Italian opera style to the neoclassical, symphonic Read more tendencies of the German and French style. In order to highlight this shift, organist Giovanni Feltrin offers a chronological promenade through Fumagalli’s entire production - from his early “Six original Marches” to the “Sonata in E minor” opus 290 (composed in 1892).

 Not My Taste August 17, 2013 By Wil L W. (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "Not my taste in style of organ music. It probably serves as a good overview of Fumagalli's works, but perhaps I would have liked this CD better had the program included more later works and not so many early compositions. However, technically, the recorded sound is good, so is the playing. The organ choice appears appropriate." Report Abuse
