Mintaka (2015) for organ by Daniele Venturi
has been included in the cd “Le nuove Musiche”,
Luca Scandali, organ
published by Brilliant Classics out on 19 January 2018.
This new recording presents an anthology of organ compositions written in Europe during the last 70 years.
From a stylistic point of view the new organ installed at the Parish Church of Our Lady of Fatima in Pinerolo is suitable for a variety of works: some of a derivative nature (homages to existing styles and musical languages or composers), others completely in line with the experimental nature of new music.
Included are organ works by Ligeti (from his famous Musica Ricercata), Matter, Peretti, Pärt, Essl, Fitkin, Danksagmüller, Bofill Levi, Venturi, Foccroulle, Eben: a wide spectrum of unheard sounds, sonorities, harmonies and rhythms, testing the possibilities of the Dell’Orto e Lanzini organ to the extreme!
Luca Scandali is one of the foremost organists of Italy, having studied with Koopman, Marcon, Tagliavini and Tamminga. He recorded for Brilliant several CD’s, with works by a.o. Galuppi, Pasquini, C.P.E. Bach.
The specifications of the organ as well as extensive liner notes are included in the booklet.
