Marco Lo Muscio (b. 1971) — Canzona — Homage to Todi (2015) for organ
“Canzona — Homage to Todi” (2015) is a homage to the Renaissance town of Todi. The canzona is based on the letters in the name T.O.D.I. (Fa – La – Re – Do). Todi is a town and municipality in Perugia (a region of Umbria) in central Italy. It is perched on a tall two-crested hill overlooking the river Tiber, with long views in either direction. In the 1990s, Richard S. Levine, a professor of architecture at the University of Kentucky, chose Todi as the model sustainable city, because of its scale and proven ability to reinvent itself over time.
Marco Lo Muscio (b. 1971) is an Italian organist and composer. He concertizes actively in programs that feature his own music as well as organ transcriptions of works by "progressive rock" composers such as John Hackett, Steve Hackett, Keith Emerson, and others. Lo Muscio's own musical style draws on influence from both progressive rock and the classical organ literature, with some forays into medieval and Renaissance music. He has been artistic director of several Italian organ festivals and his works have been played around the world by many major concert organists.
