Ennio Cominetti (b. 1957) — Promenade (2014) for organ

“Promenade” (2014) is dedicated in memory of the American composer John Cage (1912–1992). It was premiered by Cominetti while on tour in St. Mary’s Cathedral in San Francisco, California. The music seems to take its inspiration loosely from Cage’s early piano pieces, such as “Dream” (1948). “Promenade” begins with a wandering melody that passes through all 12 notes; this theme returns several times as a refrain of sorts (including appearing twice with a contrapuntal treatment). In between these melodic refrains are three episodes that are more vertical in texture and focused on chordal sonorities.

Ennio Cominetti (b. 1957) is an Italian conductor, organist, and composer. His positions have included Professor of Organ at the conservatory in Trapani and director of the Department of Sacred Music of the Arts Academy of Rome. Cominetti has toured extensively as a performer throughout North America, Central America, South America, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa. He was the founding conductor of the Orchestra Cameristica Lombarda, the Ensemble Vocale Soli Deo Gloria, and the Coro Accademico Lombardo. As a composer Cominetti has written numerous works in all genres and has edited publications of many works of Italian composers of past eras. He is also the author of several books, including a biography of Marco Enrico Bossi.
