Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

The Italian Domenico Scarlatti composed more than five hundred harpsichord sonatas in Spain during the years following 1738. These compositions pervaded by reminiscences of Iberian temperament can also be ideally rendered on a modern guitar - as is demonstrated by the American guitarist and Spainish resident Stephen Marchionda, who has now recorded these works for the first time on a Super Audio CD. As the sixth child of an Italian family of musicians, Domenico Scarlatti spent the Spanish phase of his life at the royal residences in Madrid and Seville after moving to the Iberian Peninsula. Three hundred years later Stephen Marchionda caught the Scarlatti virus in Granada.

Gramophone Magazine
It's difficult not to hear in Marchionda's insightful performances... a certain authenticity. This arises not out of any obvious virtuosity... but out of skilfully transcribing the works... and then performing them in a manner that likewise preserves their inherent colour, drama and humour.
