Considered the most virtuoso organist of XIXth Century, Giovanni Morandi has been the master of Gioacchino Rossini, whom he initiates 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 the romantic Europe to “serve music” with great vitality and enthusiasm. Unfortunately she prematurely dies and this sad epilogue leaves 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 XIXth Century.
