Synopsis

Amazon.com
Almost three decades ago, Albert Fuller made a set of three Scarlatti LPs for the Cambridge label. It was a marvelous collection, well selected to show off Scarlatti's variety and brilliantly played with great style and flair. Today, as Albert Fuller explains in his program notes, he no longer believes in using Kirkpatrick's Scarlatti Sonata pairs, for reasons he doesn't explain in detail. He has also chosen a narrower range of Scarlatti's work, eliminating some of the more exciting virtuoso pieces. His playing is more highly inflected than before, reflecting his poetic interpretations (which he details in writing). The result is a bit disappointing for those who like high- voltage Scarlatti, but this deeply thoughtful playing is stimulating and satisfying on its own terms. --Leslie Gerber
