Notes & Reviews:

Giovanni Paisiello was a successful Italian composer during the Classical era. Although Paisiello's works are mostly forgotten now, his piano concertos still enjoy popularity: they are delightful, charming and brilliant works, perfect examples of the Neapolitan style, much in vogue in 18th century Europe. Contained here on this 2-CD set are Paisiello's complete piano works. Performed by the Orchestra da Camera di Santa Cecilia with Pietro Spada on piano, this recording is as beautiful as it is unique.

Gramophone Magazine
... as Spada's lyrical cantilena in the slow movements of the D major, B flat major and A major Concertos testify, Paisiello touched a vein of genuine pathos in the slow movements. Most impressive, though, is the C major Concerto (No. 8), whose bold opening Allegro, serene Andantino and graceful finale intriguingly foreshadow Mozart's piano concertos.
