About this album



After the two beautiful CDs dedicated to the transcriptions of the most known works by Giuseppe Verdi, the organ player Roberto Cognazzo pays attention to the production by Pietro Mascagni, composer which posthumously fame continues to be based almost exclusively on Cavalleria Rusticana, considered with Pagliacci by Ruggero Leoncavallo the maximum manifesto of the musical Verismo flourished in Italy between XIX and XX centuries. The programme proposes the transcriptions of ten pieces, realized by the same Cognazzo: not only from Cavalleria (il Preludio con la Siciliana, la Preghiera and the unequalled Intermezzo), but also from L’amico Fritz, Guglielmo Ratcliff, Silvano, Iris and Le maschere, works that had great reputation and that deserve today to be rediscovered. As it already happened in the previous CDs, the performance is characterized by theatricality, that widens from singing sections with brilliant inspiration to passages of more dramatic tones and it can count on the Carlo Vegezzi Bossi’s rich sounding palette: the organ was built in 1884 and it is placed in San Massimo in Turin.
