This recording presents Bach’s transcriptions of Vivaldi (as well as those of Telemann, Couperin and others). It is well known that
Bach, during the early part of his career as a composer, refined and softened his style by studying and transcribing Vivaldi and
eventually extended this practice in later years for didactic purposes. On the basis of the little documentation available, Bach may be
assumed to have made only minimal changes, but these few details reveal the great Maestro’s “signature”: it may lie in a reworking
on the melody, or in the addition of one counterpoint.
These subtle changes were meant to support practical use of keyboards in opposition to the violin base. Great performance by Alessio
Corti on a historical great mechanical organ Tamburini.
Multiple prize-winner in many national and international competitions and regularly invited to play in important international festivals.
He recorded the complete Organ works by J.S. Bach. In 2001 he was named successor of Lionel Rogg as Professor of Organ and
Improvisation at the Conservatory of Geneva.
