    What a beautiful little church, and I loved the tone of the organ. The translation from Google was not exact, but close enough to help my poor Italian

    For an organ this size, tonally, it has a good variety. I have many CDs of Italian organs and I wonder if a CD was done on this one.

    Ciao Andrea,


    Thanks for the link. Beautiful organ and I think short octave is strange for a 1770's organ. Very good pictures of it and Church interior.


    Alessandro played extremelly well Galuppi's sonata. The organ's sound is delightful. I would like to get samples of it so I could do a VPO set with jOrgan !

    I thank all who have enjoyed this post
    I would like to add 2 links in which Alessandro plays my 2 pieces for organ, in a church close to where the organ is
    an anonymous builder of 19th century.

    Andrea,

    Grazie !

    I liked the sonata very much. 1st mov, yes, close to Haydn style. The superb Adagio in the beggining reminded me Vivaldi but some bars later came close to Mozart/Haydn era. Triumphant 3rd mov with the trompetta takin' over. Ingeniously composed variations and progressions in all movements.
    I downloaded the video for my archive. Please accept my humble congratulations.

    In SanAndrea the organ sounds fantastic ! Has other reed stops apart this super trumpet?
    Though I came to Italy many many times in the past, I never been in Iseo... Now I have a good motivation !

    Best

    Thanks for your compliments they flatter me,
    in this organ the trumpet is the only register reed stops.
    Iseo is especially good for the lake scene, in July there is a major jazz festival of this area, and sometimes there are concerts of organ.
    Iseo is close to the mountain and the hill

    Very enjoyable pieces.. I too like the sonata..the adagio is really nicely flowing with expressive feeling; Presto would take alittle work...LOL sounds Mozarty( new word )

    L'Italia ha molti tesori d'organo! Grazie per la musica fornita.

    di nulla! in effetti ci sono molti organi italiani in piccole chiese nascoste a volte dimenticati.
    Per esempio qui nel mio comune c'è un organo Cadei del 1600' nella piccola chiesa di Sant'Eufemia
