Carlo Andrea Gambini (1819-1865) was born in Genua, Italy. His talent was recognized at an early age and he developed into one of the most prominent concert pianists of his time.
As a composer Gambini was a son of his time, his style is highly romantic, influenced by the Italian opera and its grandiloquence, pomp and sentiment. Gambini’s friendship with the famous organ builder family Lingiardi led him to compose extensively for the organ. This new recording presents a collection of character pieces like Toccata, Pastorale, Corale, Passeggiata, Elevation, March, a Finale and the complete cycle of “L’Organo moderno, 24 versetti per organo”, short pieces well suited for
liturgical use, technically demanding and using the full possibilities of the organs in use at the time.
Played on the Lingiardi organ of 1854 of San Vittore, Calcio, Italy, a magnificent instrument which Gambini was familiar with. All specification of the instrument are included in the booklet.
