Edoardo Bellotti, organ
The 17th century heralded a growing repertoire for keyboard and organ works, as new instruments were built and composers innovated new styles and genres. Northern Italy became the epicentre of a new Italian Style, as musical forms like the sonata, overture, and concerto were invented, refined and went on to dominate Western music. Edoardo Bellotti plays music by Andrea Gabrieli, Claudio Monteverdi, Francesco Cavelli, Tomaso Albinoni, Giovanni Platti, Antonio Vivaldi, Pasquale Ricci and Giuseppi Verdi on the renowned Helmutt Wolff organ at Christ Church Cathedral, in a concert centred on this most highly musically influential region.
