“Scarlatti: Essercizi Per Gravicembalo” now available!
I am very pleased to announce that Scarlatti: Essercizi Per Gravicembalo, released through Halifax-based record label Leaf Music, is now available for streaming or purchase!
I spent the past 10 months completely immersed in Domenico Scarlatti’s only authorized publication, a collection of thirty sonatas first published in 1739 in London, England. This recording offers the listener a deep dive into Scarlatti’s richly inventive and imaginative musical world.
Essercizi Per Gravicembalo, meaning “Exercises for Harpsichord,” is a virtuosic collection that has been in uninterrupted print since its publication 275 years ago. The collection was dedicated to King John V of Portugal, father of Scarlatti’s longtime pupil and patron, Queen Maria Barbara of Spain.
Essercizi Per Gravicembalo was recorded April 2021 at Église St. Augustin, Mirabel, QC. Enjoy!
