Notes and Editorial Reviews

Capriccio Encore is a series of re-releases of the most famous recordings from Capriccio’s back catalogue, fully re-mastered and competitively priced. The legendary recordings of artists such as Sandor Végh, Ton Koopman, Sir Neville Marriner and the Vienna Boys’ Choir also contain repertoire highlights that have a particularly special appeal, from the baroque to the present day. This installment in the series features Ton Koopman performing Domenico Scarlatti’s sixteen keyboard sonatas. Born in The Netherlands, Ton Koopman had a classical education and studied organ, harpsichord and musicology in Amsterdam. He received the Prix d’Excellence for both instruments. He became fixated on Baroque music, and soon became a figure in the Read more “authentic performance” movement, making him perfectly suited to record these pieces.

REVIEW:

This reissue brings back harpsichordist Ton Koopman's engraving of 16 famous sonatas, including the dazzling triad K. 490 to K. 492. The Dutchman grabs this music with gluttony and gusto, conferring a jubilant and virtuoso baroque fantasy. His ornaments the works with imaginative renewal. More than thirty years later, here is a record that has not aged in the least.
