Ulisse Matthey (1876-1947)

This discographic work completes the previous Tactus album (TC871380) dedicated to the complete organ works by Ulysses Matthey, famous concert artist and teacher of the Italian historical twentieth century. After the original works, the organist Fausto Caporali – using period instruments – tackles the complete execution of the organ transcriptions in this double CD. The album is including pages of virtuosity and meditation, from the famous Chaconne in D minor by Bach for solo violin (a fascinating ”lighthouse” for many composers) to the symphonic pages of Liszt, Berlioz, Debussy, Grieg and Wagner, passing through Geminiani and Paganini. Matthey”s compositional refinement finds fertile ground in the organ adaptation of sublime pages of musical history, thanks to his experience as an instrument tester and over two thousand concerts held throughout Europe during his incredible career.
