Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Domenico Scarlatti attained fame already at an early age thanks to his highly virtuoso harpsichord playing. It was only after assuming a position at the Spanish court, however, that he became known as a composer. Scarlatti was active there as harpsichord teacher to the Spanish queen Maria Barbara until his death, and created a virtuoso oeuvre consisting of 555 harpsichord sonatas unfettered by the musical conventions of his Italian homeland. The sonatas, whose tonal language and stylistic diversity reach far beyond the immediate period of the Baroque, number among the great solo works for the harpsichord. Egon Mihajlovich performs 22 particularly striking examples influenced by flamenco and other Spanish dance forms. The Slovenia-born harpsichordist plays Scarlatti's tortuous sonatas full of wild trill passages and arpeggios on an instrument built after an original by Taskin.

American Record Guide, July/August 2014
Mihajlovic plays some lesser-known ones like K 105 (G) and does so with a lot more character and panache, variations of note length, and bravura. K 394 (E minor) bristles with near-violent bravura and nice articulation; he slows to a more leisurely pace when the music suggests it, to great effect. The sound is good. His instrument is identified as one after French models (Goermans- Taskin) built by Michael Dollendorf and restored by Dr Hans-Joachim Schugk.
