Notes & Reviews:

"The virtues of Colin Davis' Concertgebouw Haydn recordings are well known: judicious tempos, excellent playing (particularly from the wind soloists), and stylish phrasing even in quick movements. It's also very nice to see Symphony No. 88 on CD after so many years in the discographic wilderness... In multichannel format, the engineers capture plenty of room ambiance with no loss of clarity or excessive rear-channel emphasis." -Classics Today

The Telegraph
Recorded in modern stereo sound, Colin Davis and the magnificent Royal Concertgebouw are equally moving in the Largo (Haydn Symphony No. 89), keeping the music poised between hymn and celestial dance...With its warmth, exuberance and pungency of detail, this is a modern-instrument Haydn at its finest.

Musical Opinion, January 2014
More outstanding keyboard playing of 18th-century music by this exceptionally gifted young Italian pianist...This very well recorded disc may well be the first in a series of these endlessly fascinating works, and we must hope that Signor Bacchetti goes on to make many further such recordings.

MusicWeb International, June 2013
Bacchetti's pioneering voyage of discovery amongst the undiscovered gems of Italian keyboard moves to a new level with this release...Bacchetti shines a light on Scarlatti's music which seems to me at times entirely new... The results here are often surprising, certainly refreshing, and invariably crystalline in their sheer clarity of communication, elegance of structure and content.

Gramophone Magazine, September 2013
Listeners who know Bacchetti's measured, rounded and overly refined Bach playing will find themselves on familiar ground here...Bacchetti's control of sonority and articulation in Soler's C major Sonata evokes the kind of dry-ice perfection associated with pianists like Michelangeli.

International Record Review, September 2013
The most immediately striking element...is [Bacchetti's] extraordinarily refined sound at the piano. Each key stroke sounds perfectly weighted, devoid of extraneous movement. The resultant sound seems infinitely calibrated, precise, considered.

BBC Music Magazine, November 2013
If the ten selected Sonatas tend towards the elegant rather than Scarlatti's more pungent Iberian manner, this probably suits Bacchetti's temperament, since his pellucid tone and decidedly spacious tempos set a premium on an urbane, thoughtful, Italianate lyricism.
