Oh, yes!! Excellent news! I’ve been waiting for more recordings of his music ever since the BIS recording of Symphonies 4 and 9 years ago!

A very welcome release indeed! I didn't know that Santoro had composed more than 10 symphonies, and if Naxos wants to record all of them is because is worth the investment.
Give us something else; give us something new; for Heaven's sake give us something bad, so long as we feel we are alive and active and not just passive admirers of tradition!

I seldom am, but when I am, it's probably the harpsichord suites.

Me too - those are really nice...  :)

But I think we're covered, with many good interpretations available.

The same with me, and owning 10+ versions of these eight great suites my need for them is more than covered.

Do you know whether Kempff recorded any Handel? I ask because I have a CD by Eric Heidsieck called Hommage à William Kempff with a Handel suite.

I seem to recall that he has recorded the variation-movement from the Great suite in E-major, the so called Harmonius Blacksmith variations, and I think I own them on a CD which mostly contains Bach arrangements. He also recorded his own arrangement of a minuet from one of the small keyboard suites, but that's all I think.

April on Hyperion



Bargiel was a friend and colleague of Brahms and the music is said to be Brahmsian.



What clunky cover design.

Thnx!  :) I haven't heard them all, but so far I like Belder Borgstede, Dantone, Ross and Verlet.

And I haven't heard Belder. Did he record the Händel suites?

Oh yes, he did. I'm suprised you didn't know!   ;)

I seem to keep mixing up Belder and Borgstede. Anyway... :D

Would you mind to provide a link to his Händel recordings?  >:D

IMO Borgstede is better in Händel than I would expect Belder to be. Well I may be mistaken. Concerning the Borgstede set it doesn't hurt that it also includes some sympathetic Händel recordings by Loreggian.
