Notes & Reviews:
The Guardian, 19th June 2014
One of the most extraordinary achievements on disc in the last quarter-century...Wherever you dip into them, the sense of stylishness, energy and, especially, Ross's affection for Scarlatti's boundless harmonic and rhythmic imagination is obvious. It's a constant, almost inexhaustible joy.
Scott Ross's award-winning complete Scarlatti keyboard sonatas, first released on Erato in 1988, stand as a landmark in recording history. This re-release marks 25 years since Ross's death in June 1989 at age 38. In the 1980s, Ross became the first musician to record the complete keyboard sonatas - 555 in all - of Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). 34 CD's; deluxe packaging; 20-page printed booklet; 200 pages of online documentation, including commentary. Grand Prix du Disque, 1988.
