Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Whilst Alessandro Scarlatti was largely responsible for the early development of Neapolitan opera, his son Domenico is most famous for his extensive series of keyboard sonatas, of which some 555 survive. His employment at the Spanish court in Madrid led to a series of works largely designed for the Infanta, Maria Barbara, later to become Queen. These sonatas are amongst the most significant of all 18th-century keyboard works. Pianist Orion Weiss is one of the most sought-after soloists in his generation of American musicians. He has performed with most of the major American orchestras, and as a recitalist and chamber musician he has appeared across the US at venues and festivals including the Lincoln & Kennedy Centers, Ravinia and the Bard Music Festival. "I organized this program emotionally and musically, (not chronologically, or in pairs as is often custom), suggesting a sort of narrative journey. D minor marks the beginning of the journey, a sign post along the way, and then finally the return home". - Orion Weiss

Gramophone Magazine, December 2014
[In K455 and K448] his clear fingerwork avoids the music's potential for registral entanglement. Similarly, the legato fluidity Weiss brings to the F minor Sonata, K365, justifies his sedate approach...And Weiss's innate feeling for shaping long lines helps bind the persistent dotted rhythms of the long D minor [K92].

American Record Guide, March/April 2015
Naxos continues to record the 500-some Scarlatti sonatas. We dip into this series from time to time - it started around 1999. Each group seems to be by a different pianist. Here are 19 by American pianist Orion Weiss. These are mechanical and expressionless. I have heard some wonderful performances of these on piano and on harpsichord.
