Notes and Editorial Reviews

For her second Scarlatti release, Angels Hewitt partitions 17 sonatas into five distinctly contrasted but well-integrated sub-groups, although an overall game plan seems to govern the recital as a whole; it begins majestically and concludes in quiet desolation.

This release attests to Hewitt's deep affinity for Scarlatti, her exemplary musicianship and her gifts as a program builder.
