Notes & Reviews:

To celebrate the 350 anniversary of the birth of Alessandro Scarlatti, Alexander Weimann continues his project of recording the complete keyboard works of this great Italian baroque composer. This oeuvre comprises some 30 toccatas and variations, the scores of which are conserved in the collections of European and American libraries. Some of these works have never been recorded before. Recently appointed Artistic Director of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Alexander Weimann is one of the most sought-after ensemble directors, soloists, and chamber music partners of his generation.

"Scarlatti's keyboard works come late in his career, so they are the fruit of his full maturity as a composer...Weilmann displays these works to the best possible advantage. His playing is beautifully articulate and fluent. Even the most acrobatic writing sounds effortless. The instrument is a small two-manual and pedal chancel organ of 15 stops in a Montreal church. It's attractive tone is light and transparent, far better suited to the character of the music than a larger and more imposing instrument would be."-American Record Guide
