Notes and Editorial Reviews

In his early years, before moving to Milan to continue his studies at the age of 22, Puccini was playing in several churches in and around Lucca and composed several pieces for organ.Only recently several collections containing more than 30 unknown pieces have surfaced. They add a musical portrait of the young composer and a very special insight in the operatic style of the church music at the end of the 19th century. Liuwe Tamminga plays on the very same organs that the young Puccini has been playing in and around the Tuscan city of Lucca. Liuwe Tamminga is considered one of the major specialists of sixteenth and seventeenth century Italian repertoires for organ. He is the organist of the historic organs at the Basilica of San Petronio in Read more Bologna where he plays the magnificent instruments by Lorenzo da Prato and Baldassarre Malamini. He has recorded several albums, including works by Cavazzoni, Frescobaldi, and others. Read less
