From my collection.
Bought in April 2016.
First listen: 20-12-2016.
Second listen: 26-1-2017.
Label: Ars Musici.
CD 5 from 10.
Recording dates: May 1998.
Recording venue: Parish Church in Riva Valdobbia, Italy.
Recording engineer: Roberto Chinellato.
Running time: 78:27.
Classical relevance: Up to now the best recording and performance I heard of Zipoli's organ works. So in that sense essential.
Works performed by:
Angelo Corno/Enrico De Capitani/ Giorgio Merli/ Alessandro Riganti.
Instrument used. ( Very little info I could find)
It's a modern instrument in true Italian Style, but no building dates.
This instrument has a "contra octave (the octave below bottom C) and is built on a base that stretches 16 feet.
Builders are: Carlo Dell'Orto and Massimo Lanzini.
I love Zipoli's organ works very much, but could not find a recording that satisfied my wishes, well, until now that is. I was surprised by the wonderful sound of this organ, and the right tempi in which Ghielmi plays. I often encounter playing that puts you to sleep in no time, but not here. Alert playing, detailed, and the church giving a good resonance in which the instrument blooms. Ghielmi is a fine organist who gets all the essentials of this composer. One would wish for more organ works, but he did not write more.
All is in proportion, stretching into the wonderful contributions of the Canto Fermo, all of them excellent singers. It comes in a box with 10 CD'S, not all of them good, but for this CD alone worth the price.
