The people of olden times considered the organ the king of all musical instruments and believed that from the very beginning it had been created to reproduce human sounds. Like human beings the organ had a mouth, breath, teeth and played by excellent musicians could speak and tell stories, enrapture and move. This was why more than any other it was the instrument capable of elevating human beings to heaven, having forever resounded in churches and cathedrals. With its countless sounds it could lift souls to contemplate God. We asked three great organists to perform on one of Italy’s most precious classical instruments, working the bellows by hand as in former times. They certainly provided their best performances for your pleasure.
