About Le Nuove Musiche: A Journey Through The 20th And

An anthology of recent compositions for organ, written during the last seven decades, is showcased here on the new DellOrto & Lanzini organ (2011) at the Madonna di Fatima Parish Church in the town of Pinerolo, near Turin in Italys Piedmont region. Yet this exiting new material is not without acknowledgement of the past, as some of the selected pieces pay homage to styles, musical languages and composers of yesteryear. Likewise the organ, though newly constructed, is modelled on those crafted by celebrated 17th-century builder Arp Schnitger, whose instruments abounded in the Hanseatic area of northern Europe during the Baroque era. Apart from the renowned, late composers Ligeti and Eben, the music is by living authors from a variety of European backgrounds. Gyorgy Ligetis popular Musica ricercata, from early in the Hungarian composers career, is represented here by three of its movements, transcribed for organ by the artist, Luca Scandali, himself. Themes by the great Baroque musician Buxtehude provide material for Czech composerorganist Petr Eben. The two youngest composers on the programme, Pier Damiano Peretti and Daniele Venturi hail from Italy, while the German-speaking pair, Jurgen Essl and Franz Danksagmuller, both studied with Michael Radulescu in Vienna. Dutch composer Bert Matter contributes a theme and variations on a 16th-century French song, and Belgian Bernard Foccroulles O quam pulchra es is written in the style of Baroque vocal music.
