Liuwe Tamminga, Dutch organist opens the fifth edition of Sant’Anna’s “Organo della Pace” this Sunday, July 1st

Bologna-based Dutch organist Liuwe Tamminga kicks off this year’s “Organo della Pace” – the organ festival commemorating the killing of 560 innocent inhabitants of Sant’Anna at the hands of the Nazi SS troops (with the help of local Fascists) during the last world war.

Tamminga specializes in Italian music of the 16th and 17th centuries; he will play music by Dowland, Mozart, Chopin, Bach and Giacomo Puccini, among others. Nine concerts are scheduled for Sundays at 6 in Sant’Anna, see the line-up below. There are also conferences scheduled which will happen an hour before the concerts.

This is the program for Sunday’s concert:
