Notes and Editorial Reviews

...Weimann's plea for this music is very convincing and eloquent. His playing is technically brilliant, and his interpretation bold, imaginative and tasteful... [T]his recording colours the blank pages in the history of Italian keyboard music between Frescobaldi and Domenico Scarlatti.

-- Johan van Veen, MusicWeb International [reviewing Volume 1]

-----------------------------

To celebrate the 350 anniversary of the birth of Alessandro Scarlatti, Alexander Weimann continues his project of recording the complete keyboard works of this great Italian baroque composer. This oeuvre comprises some 30 toccatas and
Read more variations, the scores of which are conserved in the collections of European and American libraries. Some of these works have never been recorded before.

Recently appointed Artistic Director of the Pacific Baroque Orchestra, Alexander Weimann is one of the most sought-after ensemble directors, soloists, and chamber music partners of his generation. He has travelled the world as a member of Tragicomedia, as a guest of Freiburger Barockorchester, Gesualdo Consort, Tafelmusik, and as music director of Les Voix Baroques and Le Nouvel Opéra.

 Delightful Selections, Beautifully Played August 11, 2015 By L. Wilborn (Richwood, TX) See All My Reviews "This double CD set contains Alessandro Scarlatti's keyboard works performed on a modern but appropriate organ in Montreal, Canada. All works are beautifully played and delightful to listen to. The recorded sound is excellent. The booklet gives details of each selection. Unfortunately, there is no information on the organ stops nor pictures which I tend to enjoy. Overall, I do recommend this CD set." Report Abuse
