Arturo Sacchetti (1941)
Very few Italian musicians may say they contributed to the development of the organistic repertoire as much as Arturo Sacchetti. After studying at the Milan Conservatory, Sacchetti held over 2300 concerts as organist, harpsichordist, pianist, choir and orchestra director. Through his artistic carreer he recorded 150 albums and was assigned many prestigeous responisbilities such as the Vatican Radio artistic direction. He also spent lots of energies - both as interpreter and academic - in spreading the Lorenzo Perosi opera (he is now consideredas his most important historian. But not many know of Sacchetti as composer of organ music. The extraordinarily beautiful nine operas included in this CD (composed through 40 years) are revealed to us by Marco Limone, a talented young organist from Turin (Italy), playing the Brondino Vegezzi-Bossi 2008 organ at the Giorgio Federico Ghedini Music Conservatory in Cuneo - Church of the Holy Trinity, Centallo.
