ANDREA LUCHESI (1741-1801): 6 Sonatas for Harpsichord and Violin, Op. 1 (arr. piano Roberto Plano).
Catalogue Number: 04U022
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: One of Luchesi’s most famous pupils was the young Beethoven and one can clearly see the influence these works must have had on him. They were written for keyboard with violin accompaniment, which in the present recording is omitted, since it plays a marginal role. The sonatas are written in the Viennese Classicist style, witty, tuneful and brilliantly written for the keyboard, displaying uncommon virtuosity. Roberto Plano (piano).
