The British organist, pianist, and conductor Wayne Marshallhas swiftly risen through the ranks of world-wide fame on the basis of his technical and interpretative ability, which have made him one of the main exponents of 20th century American music. He has performed with famous European and American orchestras and has played the organ in some of the world’s prestigious venues.
His recital starts today with Bach and runs on to Rossini and other composers of those times, until he gives us one of his own compositions. This just illustrates the exceptional span of his talents.
The 1905 Tamburini organ in the Church of Saint Ambrogio in Stresa is one of the best around Lake Maggiore, and was restored in 2006 by Saverio Anselmo Tamburini.
This concert is part of the thematic area Between Classic and Neoclassic.
