Verdi: Sinfonie per organo a 4 mani
Silvio Celeghin (organ) & Federica Iannella (organ)
This project stems from the shared passion of Silvio Celeghin and Federica Iannella for operatic music. From transcriptions of overtures for piano four hands (Ed. Ricordi) and from the analysis of original scores, the two performers have tried - by retracing historic performance practices - to imitate the orchestral language peculiarities through the colours and the expressive features of the organ of Padre Davide da Bergamo, universally recognized as a symbol of “theatricality” organ. This instrument is the ideal equivalent of Verdi’s orchestration sound model, deeply different from European orchestration.
“this is by some way the most unexpected and enjoyable [Verdi anniversary recording] that I have come across...the two players manage to produce some extraordinary sounds, often, but by no means always, getting much closer to the character of the original music than one might have thought possible on the organ...likely to appeal to all Verdians or organ lovers with a sense of adventure.” MusicWeb International, 18th December 2013
