Notes and Editorial Reviews

This colorful musical journey takes its title from one of William Corbett's Bizzarie universali, a set of concertos which, in truth, owe much more to the Italian tradition than to the Iberian Peninsula. Performed by Andreas Staier and the Orquestra Barroca Casa da Música, À Portuguesa features a selection of concertos and sonatas in the Portuguese style composed during the Age of Enlightenment. Ranging from the inexhaustible delights of Domenico Scarlatti's solo Sonatas to concertos by Corbett, Seixas and Avison, Staier's program concludes with an orchestral arrangement of Boccherini's evergreen Musica notturna delle strade di Madrid.
