Ignazio Cirri lived the best part of the 18th century, a Maestro di Cappella of the Forli Cathedral in Italy. He wrote a large amount of liturgical music, but only two works were published, Violin Sonatas Opus 2, and the present Organ Sonatas Opus 1. Cirri's sonatas are in pre-classical style, and with their two movements form a bridge between the single-movement sonatas by Scarlatti and Paradisi and the Viennese sonatas by Haydn and Mozart with their 3 movements. The writing is elegant and refined, and displays an excellent command of counterpoint. Massimo Gabba, one of the most notable young organists of Italy, plays a magnificent Grisante organ of the Parish Church of San Bononio in Pozzengo, originating from the early 18th century. All it's specifications and photo are included in the booklet, which is written in English and Italian.
