Vol. IV “Historic Organs of Oaxaca, Mexico” (Órganos Históricos de Oaxaca, México)

The state of Oaxaca, Mexico houses one of the world´s most extraordinary collections of historic pipe organs. Sixty-nine instruments built between 1686 and 1891 remain today as evidence of Oaxaca´s glorious musical past; the seven organs that are still playable have been featured in the eight International Organ and Early Music Festivals sponsored by the Instituto de Órganos Históricos de Oaxaca (IOHIO). IOHIO is now releasing recordings of the concerts given during these festivals as part of the series, “Historic Organs of Oaxaca, Mexico”. This series brings the sound of these remarkable 18th century instruments to the general public, not only demonstrating the unique and brilliant character of the instruments but also providing exciting performances by distinguished organists.

LUIGI FERDINANDO TAGLIAVINI performs a richly varied program of works by 16th – 18th century Italian and Spanish composers on the visually and sonically beautiful organ of San Jerónimo Tlacochahuaya (built before 1735, restored 1991). Although the Oaxacan organs were built according to Spanish models, Tagliavini´s concert demonstrates their versatility in transmitting non-Spanish repertoire as well. The CD includes a 20-page booklet in English and Spanish with an essay by Barbara Owen about the Oaxacan organs in general and one by Cicely Winter about the specific organ itself. [total playing time 58:51].
