I first discovered Gaetano Valeri and his Sonata III some years ago through a series of Historical Organ Techniques and Repertoire, the volume dedicated to 18th century Italy, edited by Calvert Johnson and published by Wayne Leupold Editions. It is charming Classical style music, especially when performed on suitable instruments. It is written in a rondo form and has the character indication Grazioso to be performed on Italian reed stops Tromboncini.
Recently my youtuber friend Rien Schalkwijk and I were talking about relatively unknown organ repertoire and I suggested he play some Sonatas by Valeri. Turns out I wanted to play them myself as well. Hope you will enjoy the sounds of Hauptwerk Obervellach sample set!
