To many people the high point of baroque keyboard writing, Scarlatti’s sonatas are invariably played on harpsichord. Joanna Leach allows a different aspect of the music to show through on the less percussive, but equally “authentic” square piano – here a Stodart instrument of 1823, made within 70 years of the composer’s death.

Reviews

MusicWeb International

Joanna Leach is an excellent artist… the instruments presented here are very interesting and not easily available on disc. They shed light on a virtually ignored aspect of music-making in the 18th and 19th centuries.
