About

His appointment in 1757 as maestro di capilla and organist at the Escorial, the royal palace established by Philip II of Spain, allowed Antonio Soler to mix with fellow court musicians, among whom was Domenico Scarlatti, whose influence was to remain profound. Soler wrote some 150 sonatas, his greatest compositional memorial, most for the young prince, Don Gabriel. The works in this volume reveal Solerís mastery of dashing bravura and his exploitation of a full keyboard range in Sonata No.88, felicities of hand-crossing in Sonata No.89, and his awareness of the contemporary influence of Haydn in Sonata No.92.
