A music program designed to highlight the timbric characteristics of the organ of Solomeo, through a variety of composers and styles.

Variations on court music by Ferrini and Picchi give way to a fascinating South American Folias attributed to Zipoli. After a cantabile Adagio by Handel and a Sonata by Pescetti, we enter the Neoclassical Age with a lyrical Elevazione by an unknown Florentine composer, followed by the famous Minuetto by Boccherini (easily adaptable for organ) and a splendid Adagio by Beethoven.

The finale will be in the spirit of Renaissance Romanticism with an arrangement for organ of Verdi’s Vespri siciliani.
