Organ concert

Works by Anonymi, Susato, Praetorius & Ammerbach
Luca Scandali - organ
Mauro Occhionero - percussion instruments
Can the organ dance? And how! The experienced Italian organist Luca Scandali provides impressive proof of this with his very dance-like program; he is supported by a compatriot, the early music-tested percussionist Mauro Occhionero. In their collaborative project, the two focus on music of the 16th and early 17th centuries, both original compositions and arrangements of ensemble music. The Danseries by the Antwerp city musician and music publisher Tielman Susato present an equally vivid picture of Renaissance court dance culture as do the anonymous pieces from the Intabolatura Nova de Balli of 1551, while the Wolfenbüttel court kapellmeister Michael Praetorius draws primarily on popular French dance music in his collection Terpsichore, published in 1621. The crowning finale of this original concert on the undisputed queen of instruments is a musical account of a heated battle from Spain: Scandali and Occhionero let the enemy armies march up and clash, impressively depicting battle turmoil, triumph and defeat.
