We usually consider Italy a country of opera music, and this is true. But besides, Italy has a huge amount of churches and cathedrals, each housing an organ. Tonight it is an organist from Porto San Giorgio that presents the music of his cathedral to the audience of Moscow. In a certain sense, Porto San Giorgio may be called a twin town of Moscow, since they share one and the same patron saint, Saint George.
The programme consists of pieces by Bach, Rossini and Italian composers who are unknown in Russia, but for that reason non less marvellous.
