Two organists play two Italian organs – one 19th-century, one modern – in works by mostly Italian composers: Feroci, A. Scarlatti, D. Scarlatti, Oradini, Cherubini, Moretti, Buffoni, and works by J.S. Bach (BWV 579, on a theme by Corelli) and J.G. Walther (arrangement of a Vivaldi Concerto). The playing is colourful, lively and the two organists work with excellent ensemble when playing together. The recording is clear and resonant, but the brutal cut-off of ambience between pieces and individual movements spoils the total effect. An interesting work by one of the players, Galanti, completes the disc.
