Notes & Reviews:
MusicWeb International, June 2013
Bacchetti's pioneering voyage of discovery amongst the undiscovered gems of Italian keyboard moves to a new level with this release...Bacchetti shines a light on Scarlatti's music which seems to me at times entirely new... The results here are often surprising, certainly refreshing, and invariably crystalline in their sheer clarity of communication, elegance of structure and content"
BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
If the ten selected Sonatas tend towards the elegant rather than Scarlatti's more pungent Iberian manner, this probably suits Bacchetti's temperament, since his pellucid tone and decidedly spacious tempos set a premium on an urbane, thoughtful, Italianate lyricism.
Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
Listeners who know Bacchetti's measured, rounded and overly refined Bach playing will find themselves on familiar ground here...Bacchetti's control of sonority and articulation in Soler's C major Sonata evokes the kind of dry-ice perfection associated with pianists like Michelangeli.
Musical Opinion, January 2014
More outstanding keyboard playing of 18th-century music by this exceptionally gifted young Italian pianist...This very well recorded disc may well be the first in a series of these endlessly fascinating works, and we must hope that Signor Bacchetti goes on to make many further such recordings.
