Notes & Reviews:

Having recorded Domenico Scarlatti's 555 keyboard sonatas, Pieter-Jan Belder turns his attention to his Spanish contemporary, Antonio Soler. Soler's productivity was hardly less astonishing, especially as being a monk at the abbey of El Escorial required spending much of his time either in contemplation or directing the abbey's music. In this capacity he would most likely have met Scarlatti, as the latter accompanied his royal patrons to their summer retreat at El Escorial. Soler's keyboard sonatas are also bipartite constructions, with new twists of harmony and invention around each unexpected corner. The first volume is completed by one of the most curious of all harpsichord works, a Fandango with a slowly evolving, hypnotic effect that has more than once been compared to Ravel's Bolero.

Gramophone Magazine
If these performances are less thoughtful in approach than Bob van Asperen's in the early '90s... they benefit from a greater sense of spontaneity and more characterful instrumental sound. At super-budget price, it hardly needs adding that they are superb value.
