Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Volume 7 of the Boris Bloch series contains live recordings of Scarlatti's sonatas for piano.

American Record Guide, March/April 2014
Bloch made this recording on a Steinway (number 314,503) with the name "Horowitz Piano" - presuming that this was the instrument Horowitz used for his final concerts in Moscow and St Petersburg. The release is superior in every respect. Scarlatti's music is unusually varied, and the piano's many possibilities for tone color and phrasing suit it extraordinarily well. Bloch approaches the music with a full heart and brings every bit of his considerable technique and musicality to the task. He's never afraid to use the pedal, as in K 381 (E) to create sonorous cascades of harmony. His singing tone emerges beautifully in K 319 (cast in the then-novel key of F-sharp). In the second half of K 514 (C), he plays a very simple melodic gestures differently for each of its three appearances by using variations of timing, tone, and volume. The evergreen K 380 (E) gives the impression of a child's reenactment of a courtly ritual. I wish Bloch would record more of them.
