2010 six CD collection. This is the second volume of our complete Scarlatti project Scarlatti's 555 keyboard sonatas are single movements, mostly in binary form. Some of them display harmonic audacity in their use of discords, and also unconventional modulations to remote keys. They combine pure joyous sounds with the taut rhythms of Spanish dance and the harmonic brilliance of his Italian heritage to a degree that places him among the greatest musicians of all time. This first volume of the recordings of all of Scarlatti's sonatas, eloquently played on the Bösendorfer Imperial piano by Carlo Grante, is a splendid and fascinating undertaking: A journey through shared cultural experience, as well as one that explores the subtle thought processes of a highly influential musical genius.
