Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — Concertino per organo solo (2015)

1. Allegro moderato
2. Adagio
3. Scherzo
4. Allegro

“Concertino per organo solo” (2015) was commissioned by Carson Cooman. The first movement employs a concerto-texture, with a contrast between “solo” and “ripieno,” modeled on the baroque concerto transcriptions for organ. A lyric adagio and a jaunty scherzo form the middle movements, and a joyous finale brings the work to a conclusion. As with many of Ferrari’s works traditional elements of the past are explored within a contemporary harmonic language derived from polymodality and idiosyncratic modal structures.

Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) is an Italian composer. Educated at the Conservatory in Milan, she has composed in many genres, developing a personal language that is concerned with the blend of past and present. Her compositions have been performed frequently around the world. Ferrari’s music appears on several CD recordings, including five all-Ferrari organ CDs: three recorded by Carson Cooman (2014/16) and two by Peter Clark (2015/16). She served as chair of music composition at Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang, China and is currently professor of music composition at the European School of Economics in Florence, Italy.
