The Frescobaldi Legacy - Girolamo Frescobaldi - opis albumu:
Although Girolamo Frescobaldi is said to have had a beautiful singing voice, it was his talent as a keyboardist that brought him into the spotlight in Italy in the late 16th and early 17th centuries, and which allowed him the opportunity to frequent such established composers as John Dowland and Orlando di Lasso. After Frescobaldi was appointed organist of St Peters Basilica in Rome, many aspiring musicians travelled there in order to study with him, and his influence on later composers of the Baroque period is undeniable. This release is dedicated to arrangements of Frescobaldis music, with each composition bearing the hallmarks of its transcribers distinct style. In addition to offerings by Respighi, Bauer and Feinberg, the disc features Reichas 36 Fugues pour le Pianoforte -- a work that pays homage to the early-Baroque composer through its use of the composers Recercar Chromatico. The same theme also appears in Ligetis Omaggio a Girolamo Frescobaldi, a modern interpretation using the twelve-tone scale, and the compilation extends its twentieth-century focus through the inclusion of Bart k -- a composer who, during his years as a touring concert pianist, acquired the Torchi edition of Frescobaldis works while on a trip to Italy. In his fourth recording for Brilliant Classics, Sandro Ivo Bartoli -- a leading interpreter of early-20th-century music, hailed as one of the most exciting pianists of his generation -- casts a new perspective on the Italian geniuss works and shows the extent to which his music produced a legacy that permeated the Classical period and beyond.
