PROGRAMME INFORMATION

Multiple Diaposan d’or organist Lorenzo Ghielmi has prepared a superb program bridging the baroque-galant divide.  Organist of the Ahrend organ in the historic Basilica San Simpliciano, Milan, Ghielmi’s comprehensive insight of both the baroque and galant period is evidenced in an expressive selection of music fashioned to reveal the relationship between these two musical styles. 

Lorenzo Ghielmi is one of Europe’s leading musicians in the study and interpretation of music from the Renaissance and the Baroque. As organist, harpsichordist and conductor, he has performed throughout Europe, in Japan and in America, and he has made many recordings for radio (BBC, WDR, MDR, Radio France, NHK). Among his extensive discography, his recordings of Bruhns, Bach, Handel concertos and the concertos by Haydn for organ and orchestra have been awarded the "Diapason d'Or".  He teaches organ, harpsichord and ensemble music at the Civica Scuola di Musica di Milano and from 2006 to 2015 he was Professor of Organ at the Schola Cantorum Basiliensis in Basel.  He conducts his own ensemble La Divina Armonia and has supervised the construction of several modern organs, including the monumental instrument in Tokyo Cathedral and that of Palma de Mallorca Cathedral.
