FERDINANDO TURRINI (1745-1820): 6 Harpsichord Sonatas “Raccolta Fini”, 6 Harpsichord Sonatas “Raccolta Spinola”.
Catalogue Number: 10V021
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Turrini’s sonatas are written in two movements, one fast and lively, the other calm and meditative. Though rooted in the galant style they sometimes go beyond its restrictions, in terms of individual expression of emotions and technical complexities; it is in the Fini sonatas that a kinship with Beethoven becomes evident. These works far transcend their galant context, and could equally well be performed on the fortepiano. 2 CDs. Michele Barchi (harpsichord).
