Kalevi Kiviniemi announces his new CD, Antico (Fuga, 6419369094645, €24), the twentieth installment in his OrganEra series, completing a project that began two decades ago. Antico was recorded in the Basilica of Notre Dame de Valère, in Sion, Switzerland, on the world’s oldest playable organ. The instrument has 376 pipes, the oldest and smallest of which are from the original instrument, built c. 1435.
The OrganEra series features historic organs from across the world. Among them are instruments from Rouen, France (Cavaillé-Coll), Las Piñas in Philippines (bamboo organ), Sanfilippo, Barrington Hills, Illinois (theatre organ), Melbourne, Australia (Town Hall), and Neresheim, Germany (Neresheim Abbey).
