Description: Last November, Passacaille offered a disc of Puccini organ transcriptions; now we have one from this Italian label with six Rossini overtures transcribed (by whom it is not said but we assume from the notes that it was done for this recording) for organ four-hands and using a period Italian organ of the sort which would have sounded such transcriptions 150 years ago when they were so popular. Giuliana Maccaroni, Federica Iannella (1821 Fratelli Serassi organ of Sta. Maria Assunta, Caluso, Torino).
