Quote from: Mandryka on May 05, 2012, 10:22:13 AMA new thread to talk about interesting younger harpsichordists of your choice.One recording I really love by a young harpsichordist is Marco Farolfi's Scarlatti CD, which to me to to have a wonderful collection of sonatas. He plays in an inspired, spontaneous way, charged with an entirely appropriate spirit of duende, and yet he is at the same time brimming over with humanity. It has all the inspiration of Skip Sempe's Scarlatti CD without the hardness. And all the humanity of Pieter Jan Belder at his best, but none of Belder's carefulness.
Quote from: (: premont :) on May 05, 2012, 11:12:25 AMI have not investigated the ongoing Stradivarius Scarlatti cycle other than two of the volumes by Ottavio Dantone, - good but not remarcable. I have now put the Farolfi CD on my wish list. An interesting and very individual Scarlatti interpreter I would like to mention is Enrico Baiano. His two Scarlatti CDs are IMO remarcable from an expressive point of view, as well as his Froberger and Frescobaldi CDs. I do not own others than these, but I know that Que has collected a number of his recordings.Link to Amazon.fr with Baiano recordings:http://www.amazon.fr/s/ref=nb_sb_noss_1?__mk_fr_FR=%C5M%C5Z%D5%D1&url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=enrico+baiano&x=15&y=24And Amazon.it:http://www.amazon.it/s/ref=nb_sb_noss?__mk_it_IT=%C5M%C5Z%D5%D1&url=search-alias%3Dpopular&field-keywords=enrico+baiano&x=20&y=18
Quote from: Mandryka on May 15, 2012, 10:34:02 AMI knew his aristocratic, extremely confident, Frescobaldi recording before. I got Vol 2. of the Scarlatti, I'm very tempted to get Vol 1 too. He has a mind of his own, Baiano. What do you think of the way he plays K 132? I find it very moving because it's so flexible.

Another interesting K 132 I found on spotify is from Bertrand Cuiller -- he's another youngish harpsichordist I'd like to see. I got to know of him through his Byrde CD, which is also on spotify.

Quote from: Mandryka on September 07, 2016, 04:33:26 AMThis guy, Justin Taylor, can really play - that's to say he knows how to make the textures varied and how to let one voice lead over another. He is a thinker - the vision of Forqueray presented here is pretty well original for its nobility and its refinement. No one else uses ornaments in Forqueray like Justin Taylor does. The image on the CD shows a young man, but that does not seem to impede depth of feeling and sense of style, much more impressive than Jean Rondeau IMO. In fact the depth of feeling is such that I'm almost ready to claim that he's part of the new wave of French music, which finds more emotion and reflectiveness than was previously dreamt of - joining the ranks of Bertrand Cuiller and possibly Rousset if his latest Rameau if anything to judge by. He won a prize at a competition in Bruges and you can hear why he impressed the jury. One to watch.

Quote from: Mandryka on January 14, 2017, 09:40:23 PMFor me bliss and pain are more of a sine qua non than bite and growl in Forqueray. I can enjoy Koopman, but it's Leonhardt's final recording which most developed my expectations in this music.
Quote from: B_cereus on January 14, 2017, 09:04:15 AMI like Francesco Corti
Quote from: Mandryka on January 16, 2017, 08:59:49 PMDo you know what sort of harpsichord he plays?
Quote from: bioluminescentsquid on January 16, 2017, 09:17:11 PMOn this one (which is on Spotify), apparently he plays the Neuchatel Ruckers.https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=O-hhGKcszSIRather nice - although it might not oust van Asperen, Hogwood or Leonhardt, it's Louis Couperin at its grandest and showiest. Watch out for that Branle de Basque on the CD!
