Considered the most virtuoso organist of XIXth Century, Giovanni Morandi was the master of Gioacchino Rossini, whom he initiated into the opera. Morandi’s wife Rosa Morolli, one of the most appreciated Rossini singer, was the seal of this intensive collaboration between Morandi and Rossini. They all travelled throughout romantic Europe to “serve music” with great vitality and enthusiasm. Unfortunately, she died prematurely and this sad epilogue left an indelible trace in the personality of this great musician, who dedicated all his music to her. This CD, recorded in the first modern recording production on the beautiful Callido organ in Macerata, gives back the value of Morandi’s writing, true to the original and therefore the culminating point of organ composition in the XIXth Century.
