This first complete edition of organ music by Pietro Alessandro Yon represents an important piece in the mosaic of Italian organ composition of the Cecilian generation, in which Marco Enrico Bossi, Giovanni Tebaldini and Oreste Ravanello were the main exponents. Pietro Yon, friend of Bossi, was predominantly a concert artist, acclaimed by audiences for the virtuosity and singability of his performances; he made his fortune in America, where he developed his musical talent like his great business skills, never forgetting Italy, that always remained in his heart. The young Bolognese organist Elisa Teglia performs this repertoire on four historical instruments alternating pieces of rare expressiveness with others based on spectacular technicalities, often including popular themes, national anthems and famous melodies.
