Cacioppo releases new CD.
July 26 was the official release date for the Navona Records organ music CD “Heavy Pedal.” The disc features Di Cibo Celeste by Curt Cacioppo, performed by organist Robert Gallagher. The work, commissioned by the Settimana Organistica Internazionle of Piacenza, Italy, is a ciaconna-fantasia on elements from Mozart’s “Don Giovanni.” Cacioppo’s work stands alongside those of four fellow composers, the compilation representing international talent from the U.S., England, Australia, Germany and the Czech Republic. The CD also includes an enhanced content component which allows you to follow the score while listening, read artist biographies and commentaries, view session photos, and more. This is Cacioppo’s 11th release.
