PIETRO DOMENICO PARADISI (1707-1791): Harpsichord Sonatas Nos. 7-12, Harpsichord Concerto in B Flat.
Catalogue Number: 05K036
Reference: CD 2025
Description: Published in London in 1754, these two-movement, bipartite sonatas are very much in the Scarlatti vein, even to using the quirky key changes and distinctive closing figures which the earlier composer used. Note: on a Centaur recording we offered in January 2007, all 12 are contained on one 77-minute disc whereas half of them take 64 minutes here (the 13-minute concerto is not otherwise available), presumably due to observance of repeats and/or ornamentation. Filippo Emanuele Ravizza (harpsichord).
