LUIGI FERDINANDO TAGLIAVINI
Thursday, May 3, 2012 at 8:00 pm
Works by masters of the Italian Baroque, J.S. Bach, Louis Couperin, and Romantic Italian composers Ottorino Respighi and Marco Enrico Bossi.
We are extremely honored to present this great musician in his first US concert in 25 years. Tagliavini, more than anyone else, re-introduced to the musical world the great Italian Baroque organ repertory and the appreciation of the Italian Baroque instruments that remain intact. Because of his profound musicality and influence, he is certainly considered one of the preeminent organists of the Twentieth Century. Besides Italian Baroque music, his program will feature works of Louis Couperin, Bach, as well as seldom-heard pieces by Bossi and Respighi.
