Lovely played, Raymond. In contrast with other commentors, I liked the last one best, perhaps because it is more subdued and 'deeper' than the average Scarlatti Sonatas (I believe the slow ones stand out from the crowd musically, not that I've heard them all ...). All are played with great skill, authority, and warmth. Bravo !
Shame about the off-tune piano in that famous E major sonata. I guess these were recorded over some span of time ?
I don't really know what to do with the spoken introduction... Yes we are planning to revive the Radio Show (for those of you who were around in early days) but even then I would not know how to make use of it, unless we were to combine this bit of text, together with these three sonatas, into one track. Technically, that is an option although it goes against the normal way we organize things, so I think it is not a good idea.
I will put these recordings on the site over the weekend or perhaps earlier when I have some time.
Dear Chris.Before you decide not to include my introductions,please wait untill
you get my whole CD. I would be very sorry to lose them, since they really add
something to the CD as a whole.A certain imtimacy would be lost without them.
