If you have never heard of Giovanni Giorgi, you don't need to be ashamed. It is very likely that Leonardo García-Alarcón hadn't heard of him either, when in 2000 the Italian musicologist Jolando Scarpa showed him the manuscripts of Giorgi's Offertorios. "I still remember very clearly the wonderful impression that my first reading of these scores made on me", he writes in the booklet. When performers discover music which has been hitherto completely unknown they tend to go a little overboard, claiming the music or its composer ranking among the very best. In his notes García-Alarcon labels Giorgi "one of the greatest master composers of Western music". That is quite something. Is he right? Let's see.
