Notes and Editorial Reviews

Our previous reviews of earlier volumes in this series from Nimbus of all Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas played by Richard Lester, have acknowledged a remarkable achievement remarkably well brought off. The miscellany of works in this final volume is no exception.

One does not note the kind of personal development of the Italian composer who spent most of his life in Spain - and specifically in the service of the a handful of members of the same royal court - as one does for, say, the piano sonatas of Beethoven or even Mozart, who was born the year before Scarlatti died. Yet there is a sort of progression … Scarlatti's priorities change and mature, his confidence grows, new interests take over from others fully explored.

Indeed it's Scarlatti's immense variety that - above much else - may strike a listener who takes the time and trouble really to listen to one sonata after another. In appreciating this body of recordings, which must surely now be regarded as the preferred set, one will also marvel at the amount of original musicological scholarship undertaken then exploited by Lester - a scholarship which has firmly underpinned every aspect of his meticulous approach.

This means that the series as a whole must be rounded off with a set of three CDs that attend to 'unfinished business', as it were. These are variants, recently discovered works, and unpublished appendices. Volume VII consists of three CDs and a total of 57 sonatas (23 on disc 1 and 17 on each of discs 2 and 3) whose manuscripts are held - not in Venice, as has been the case for the sonatas presented in Volumes I to VI - but in various Spanish, Italian, Portuguese, German locations, and indeed in the Fitzwilliam and British Library (Worgan) collections.

When Scarlatti's first modern champion, Ralph Kirkpatrick (the 'K' of the Domenico Scarlatti cataloguing system) was writing in 1953, he knew of no (extant) Iberian manuscripts, although he did accept into a secondary canon a few works not in the Venice manuscripts. Kirkpatrick's assumption was that the entire oeuvre, copied during the composer's last years (1752-57) and passed on to the singer Farinelli on Scarlatti's death, was to be found in Venice and Parma. Then, prompted by the tercentenary of Scarlatti's birth in 1985, new sonatas began to come to light.

Perhaps inevitably, scholars have disputed some attributions to Scarlatti - of the K142-144 (CD 1), for example. Lester's assessments draw on the clear and expansive notes of W Dean Sutcliffe in looking at the cases for and against a particular sonata's inclusion in the canon. The latter's The Keyboard Sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti and Eighteenth-Century Musical Style, CUP (2003) 0521481406 was also previously recommended here as an excellent companion source. The judgements of them both seem good. Inclusive if there is doubt, which there rarely is.

CDs 2 and 3, on the other hand, include those nearly three dozen sonatas which Kirkpatrick numbered (K31-42, K202-206, K356-7, K452-3, K544-555) but which were not part of Queen Maria Barbara's Venice manuscripts.

This final volume is not to be considered as a set of doubtful curios, though. The music is uniformly valid in its own right. And it's as expertly played by Lester as any other in the entire sequence. The lively and compelling rhythms of the dance are as prominent as ever. Lester elicits subtlety in such passages and achieves the right balance between the very sound of the harpsichord he plays and the music 'beyond' the sonorities of any one instrument.

The tempi and contrasts of these dance-inspired works are finely nuanced yet plainly articulated: listen to the range of textures and sonorities supporting the melody, in K K554, and how Lester uses them with complete confidence. The more intricate tempi - the halting K33, for example - are equally deftly negotiated.

There are some exciting, not to say exhilarating, moments - indeed the opening of K141 is chromatic, sparse and full of tension. The handling of both the onset of this drama and its release are reminders of just how good a technique Lester has.

Nothing is dwelt on for too long; at the same time no opportunity for intrinsic colour is missed. In common with not a few other of the sonatas here, there is scope for some mis-steps - many passages are overtly percussive. Lester avoids this trap and keeps one's interest in the aural palette and melodies as much as in the insistence of the rhythms. At the same time he does not let the pace drop or lag. His tempi in K144 are good examples of this fine judgement. The same informed restraint Lester applies (in K35 and K147, for example) to Scarlatti's repetitions. His playing balances momentum with delicacy; the ostinati never cloy. Listen to Lester's tour de force in K 205 - nearly nine minutes of sustained balance and measured advance, not missing a beat, nor over-driving the insistent progressions. Breathtaking.

These assessments might seem to suggest that the music in these volumes lacks melody because it's somehow experimental or wayward. Far from it. Lester points Scarlatti's melodic invention up consistently well: perhaps through his confidence and familiarity with the music and the genre as much as anything.

The harpsichord used on this recording is by Michael Cole after José Joachim Antunes (1785) with A tuned to 415 (Valotti). The liner notes - a little lacking throughout the other volumes - are fuller here (see above). The recording is forward, lush and impactful. Indeed, one criticism that could be legitimately levelled at Lester's sound is that it is too bright - a little too insistently metallic. For some listeners used to a damper acoustic and/or an essentially quieter instrument that will be the case.

Until now the reference recording for this repertoire has been that of Scott Ross on Warner Classics (62092). But it's more than 20 years since that recording appeared; it comes on 34 CDs. MDT sell this for £85 which represents very good value for money and could certainly be taken advantage of; Ross' approach and execution are excellent. Lester's Nimbus series comprises 38 discs: it contains more material and makes an exceptionally good alternative which cannot be recommended too highly.
