Performer Composer

Notes & Reviews:

Domenico Scarlatti's 500 plus keyboard sonatas show a composer experimenting with form: way ahead of his Baroque contemporaries, the Italian wrote highly virtuoso mood pieces, some of them bearing the mark of the local folk music in Spain, where he worked at the royal court. In Mikhail Pletnev's hands, this 2nd selection of Scarlatti sonatas displays all the nuances of these miniature masterpieces.

EMI Classics continues its Red Line series with another collection of timeless classical pieces. This series features a wide variety of the most talented classical pieces of all time, written by such legendary artists as Bach, Beethoven, Wagner, Tchaikovsky and Mozart. In addition, each CD features some of the most popular classical performers such as the Placido Domingo, Mikhail Pletnev and Kiri Te Kanawa. Every CD in the Red Line series features some of the most defining pieces in musical history.

BBC Music Magazine, June 2013
Purists allergic to Scarlatti on the piano needn't hesitate. Mikhail Pletnev seems to relish the Steinway but his range of tone is ravishing and his playfulness is captivating, and both outweigh any Romantic indulgences.
