One of the greatest keyboard legacies of all was left by Domenico Scarlatti who, like Bach and Handel, was born in 1685 – the fact that it is one of the most important, an oeuvre whose influence extended all the way to composers of the 20th century, can’t be repeated often enough. But the music itself is more eloquent than any words, particularly in a performance as masterful as the one offered by Swiss pianist Katia Braunschweiler in her GENUIN debut release. She serves up these miniature gems with great care, tonal beauty, and loving attention to detail – an ideal ambassador for the virtuoso and strikingly modern sonatas that tell of Scarlatti’s Italian homeland and his love for his adopted home of Spain.
