Harpsichord Sonatas (12)


Enrico Baiano (harpsichord)


These twelve sparkling sonatas from 1754 by Pier Domenico Paradisi (or Paradies) come from a period when Italian instrumental style had been losing ground compared to what was being produced on the other side of the Alps. Paradisi acts as a catalyst for the different attitudes of expression in Italy, France and Eastern Europe, expanding the boundaries of the so-called stile galante.

Enrico Baiano, who enjoyed a remarkable period of recording activity for the Symphonia label in the 1990s, shows again with this stunning 1995 Paradisi recital, why he is regarded as one of the best harpsichordists of his generation.
