About this album

Though he is almost unknown outside the world of organ music, Gordon Young has been among the most authoritative exponents of the American music landscape of the mid XX century and can boast a vast production of remarkable quality on his behalf, which comprises over 800 works. These works, mostly for organ and choir, made it possible for Young to be awarded the ASCAP prize, the American Society of Composers, Authors and Publishers of the United States, for 18 consecutive years, an accomplishment never equaled by any other composer. To celebrate the first centenary of the birth of Young, Elegia Calssics presents this surprisingly beautiful CD that makes it possible to discover the composer’s brilliant and very personal style. In it, style elements from the great masters of Baroque and of Romantic composers as well can be recognized as these are reinvented in a very personal key. This can be noticed in the Cathedral Suite that opens the program. Young has found a valid paladin in Alessandro Bianchi, an organist of great talent, who performs these works on the great Diego Bonati Balbiani Vegezzi-Bossi organ of the Parish Church of Saint Anastasia of Villasanta.
