Various - Overtures for Organ - Pasquini / Zuvadelli

Lägg till önskelista + 119 kr - Utgången

Although usually performed by large orchestras, this new release brings the overture an introduction to an opera, ballet, suite or oratorio to the organ, in innovative arrangements for four hands. The transcription of orchestral materialonto the keyboard has proved popular throughout history, as it brought celebrated concert hall music to more intimate, domestic venues. Arrangements for two players became more fashionable during the second half of the 19th century, through virtuoso pianists such as Max Reger and Franz Liszt.On this recording, overtures from across the centuries are brought alive in imaginative duets. From the solemn, majestic introductions to Handels Water Music and Bachs third Orchestral Suite to the familiar strains of the troubadour song in the overture to Bizets Carmen, and the dreamlike, imaginary world of Tchaikovskys Nutcracker Suite overture, the grandiose repertoire heard here is nothing but diverse.In contrast to the piano, the different combinations of stops possible on the organallow a variety of timbres, so that the hue of the orchestral version remains largely intact. Italian organists Pietro Pasquini and Francesco Zuvadelli have also made further adjustments and additions to existing keyboard arrangements by established omposers, carefully bringing out a wealth of colours and phrases from the original compositions. They have selected two organs to reflect the contrasting nature of the music the pieces by Bach, Handel and Mozart were recorded on a Baroquestyle German organ, while the pieces by Beethoven, Bizet, Tchaikovsky and Rossini were recorded on a vast Italian organ of the 1800s, conceived and built like a large orchestra for the performance of the operatic music that held sway in Italy during the 19th century.
