Product Description

Liuwe Tamminga performs on organs in Bologna and Verona played upon or heard by Wolfgang Mozart when he traveled in Italy at age 14 in 1769-1771. The pieces used are little-known compositions and several of Mozart’s sketches completed by other musicians and present a fascinating aural tour of Italian sounds.

The organs are by Giuseppe Bonatti (1716) in San Tomaso Cantuariense, Verona; Petronio Giovagnoni (1759-62) in San Domenico, Bologna; Lorenzo da Prato (1471-75) in the Basilica of San Petronio in Bologna. Tamminga is joined by Luigi Mangiocavallo in the Bolognese basilica playing an organ by Baldassarre Malamini (1596) for several pieces on two organs.

The CD booklet contains specifications for each of the organs and also a lengthy essay regarding Mozart’s first trip through Italy.
