The harpsichordist Francesco Corti gives us a pre-revolutionary Haydn, very close to Domenico Scarlatti and CPE Bach, marked by the counterpoint of Johann Joseph Fux. The feeling of freedom that he expresses serves wonderfully the musicality of these masterpieces of keyboard music.

Francesco Corti was born in Arezzo, Italy, in a musical family in 1984. He studied organ in Perugia, then harpsichord in Geneva and in Amsterdam. First prize winner in the international competition 'Johann Sebastian Bach' Leipzig in 2006, Francesco Corti regularly plays with Les Talens Lyriques (Rousset), Le Concert des Nations (Jordi Savall), Les Musiciens du Louvre (Minkowski), Pulcinella ensemble and Leipzig Baroque Orchestra. His solo recordings include a CD of Louis Couperin Suites, the Partitas by J.S. Bach and the two piano quartets by Mozart recorded on the original instrument owned by the composer, now in Salzburg. This is his first CD for Evidence Classics.
