    The Concert Series at Wellesley College Presents “The Golden Age of the Organ From Venice to North Europe”

    Italian organist Francesco Cera will present a program featuring music by Gabrieli, Segni, Merulo, Sweelinck, Scheidemann, and Schilt on Wellesley’s magnificent meantone organ. Cera resides in Rome, and is particularly well known for his performances of 17th century harpsichord and organ music. He frequently performs with the ensemble I Barocchisti, directed by Diego Fasolis, with whom he has recorded four concertos for harpsichord by J.S. Bach (issued by Amadeus). Wellesley’s organ, built by the late Charles Brenton Fisk, is considered one of the three most important historic organs in America, and was designed specifically for the performance of north German organ music of the 17th century.
