Bertoldo & Borgo: Complete Organ Music

In this video

This new recording brings together organ music by two Italian Renaissance composers, Sperindio Bertoldo (1530-1570) and Cesare Borgo (1560-1623), master musicians active as organists of resp. the Padua Cathedral and the Milan Cathedral.
The two organ music scores contain typical forms of music of the Renaissance period for keyboard instruments such as the toccata, ricercar and canzona.
Played on a beautiful historical organ built by Vincenzo Colombi in 1533, situated in the Chiesa del SS Corpo di Cristo in Valvasone, Italy, the specification of which are included in the booklet.
Organist Manuel Tomadin is one of the foremost Italian organists of today, a scholar and passionate musician, with an impressive discography to his name: Husumer Organ Book, Alberti Complete Keyboard Works, and other North German organ masters.

Composers: Cesare Borgo, Sperindio Bertoldo
Artist: Manuel Tomadin (organ)

Among the most popular of pianistic genres now, boasting virtuoso showpieces from Bach to Prokfiev, the keyboard toccata first appeared in print in 1591, within this collection of work by Sperindio Bertoldo. Sadly the collection only appeared posthumously, for Bertoldo died around 1570, at the age of 40 or so, at the height of an illustrious if eventful career. He had become organist of Padua Cathedral in his early 20s, but in 1567 he was suspended for insubordination. Having evidently shown appropriate contrition, he was reinstated, and remained in post until his death, having at that stage published only books of madrigals.

Yet his organ works are equally worthy of revival, anticipating the florid brilliance and spatial effects of the Venetian masters such as the Gabrielis. Another volume published in 1591 was dedicated to Canzoni francese: instrumental versions of French songs by Crecquillon, Janequin and Clemens non Papa and these are elaborately decorated with imitation and ornamentation like a side-chapel to a Rococo church.
