Notes & Reviews:

Soler was music master to the princes of Bourbon in El Escorial, the palace of the King of Spain. It's probable that most of his keyboard sonatas were written for Prince Gabriel and these essentially private works - around 150 have survived - bear comparison with the works of Domenico Scarlatti and C.P. E. Bach. Soler was fond of dance rhythms and guitar imitations, as well as infectious and delightful modulations. These fifteen sonatas are heard here in the order proposed by Rubio's catalogue. Pianist Martina Filjak - "brilliance, sensitivity and imagination" (The New York Times) - is a much admired international artist.

Martina Filjak won first prize in the 2008 Maria Canals International Music Competition in Barcelona and the 2009 Cleveland International Piano Competition. She was additionally awarded an Honorary Medal by the President of the Republic ofCroatia in 2009, for her artistic achievements.

Ritmo
Martina Filjak, which debuts on white label, taking into account the ancient instrument to some extent and is not afraid to be applied to fund management now broad phrases supported changing dynamics, use of multiple variants pedalizaci=n and enrich the joint sound course original with very satisfactory results.

WCLV
Martina Filjak's playing on this first volume is good enough that you almost don't regret the change of instrument...

Allmusic.com
Filjak's playing is crisp and clean, so all the details of the music come through, and the fine qualities of her playing are clearly heard in Naxos' focused reproduction. Because these are educational pieces, which Soler composed for a Spanish prince to play, they are fairly predictable and concentrated on matters of technique, somewhat more than on imaginative flights of fancy. Even so, Filjak gives them considerable interest and charm, so this album is far from a series of routine exercises.
