Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) — L’albero della morte (2017) for organ

“L’albero della morte” (2017) [The Tree of Death] is inspired by the fresco depicting Hell (the Inferno) that is painted on the walls of the church of San Giorio a Mandello del Lario (Lake Como)—especially the fresco that depicts the Inferno as a tree with the sinners as its branches. The piece is a “danza macabra” inspired by the style of old Italian organs.

Carlotta Ferrari (b. 1975) is an Italian composer. Educated at the Conservatory in Milan, she has composed in many genres, developing a personal language that is concerned with the blend of past and present. Her compositions have been performed frequently around the world. Ferrari’s music appears on several CD recordings, including five all-Ferrari organ CDs: three recorded by Carson Cooman (2014/16) and two by Peter Clark (2015/16). She served as chair of music composition at Hebei Normal University in Shijiazhuang, China and is currently professor of music composition at the European School of Economics in Florence, Italy.
