Scarlatti: Seven Soantas; Soler: Eight Sonatas; Handel: Suite in E major, HWV 430

Notes & Reviews:

BBC Music Magazine, August 2014
Larrocha's 1981 Scarlatti and Soler album for Decca here fleshed out with two more Soler Sonatas and Handel's Suite No. 5, gleams with lucid transparency and rhythmic ebullience.

On the up-tempo Scarlatti, and on the Handel with its famous Harmonious Blacksmith variations, Larrocha is bright and clear.

Gramophone Magazine, December 1981 (Scarlatti & Soler sonatas)
A quality of gentility [in the Scarlatti] ... and the Soler is splendid.

Gramophone Magazine, September 1987 (Handel)
Vivid contrasts of dynamics, colour and touch, plus quite a show of bravura in the famous concluding Harmonious Blacksmith.
