Italian Organ Music Vol.1

Bossi — Capocci — Fagiani — Morandi

Eugenio Maria Fagiani, organ

Eugenio Maria Fagiani combines the characteristic sound world of the late-romantic Locatelli Organ of Mapello (near Bergamo, Italy) with his own lively performance style. He presents works of the Italian organ masters in addition to introducing, for the first time, works of his own. Organ “playing”, pun intended!
Incl. World Prèmiere Recordings!
