Ennio Cominetti
at the Organ in Sta. Maria delle Grazie in Montepulciano, Italy

„... hier zum ersten Mal auf einem bisher unbeachtet gebliebenen Barockinstrument zu hören, gespielt von dem Meister der italienischen Orgelmusik.“

“The organ featured on this recording is a perfect match for the trademark freshness and elegance of Pasquini’s music. And this is hardly surprising: the unique instrument in the church of S. Maria delle Grazie in Montepulciano (Siena) traces its origins back to the seventeenth century. Since then it has experienced its share of historical ups and downs: the magnificent cypresswood pipes have survived the ravages of time.“
