Domenico Scarlatti Sonatas Vol.1
The prize-winning young Italian pianist, Federico Colli, offers a fresh take on the venerable keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti in his most recent release. His approach is uniquely philosophical: “I conceived a map of a journey into transcendental thought, beyond the works’ phenomenological meaning. Each chapter has a title and the individual sonatas in each chapter refer back to the permeating image of its basic idea.” Wow, thinking caps on!
