In the Baroque period, there really was no such thing as an "orchestra" as we understand the term today. There were large collections of singers and players brought together for special occasions, but aside from those, an "orchestral" work was anything that required more than five or six players. Bach's harpsichord concertos, for example, can be performed by a couple of dozen string players plus the soloist, or with an accompaniment of one person per part, which is more or less what we get here. These small forces permit an unprecedented transparency of sound and sharpness of attack, even if some weight and body of tone necessarily get sacrificed. It's a perfectly legitimate way to play the music, however, and you won't find it better done than here.

The astonishing technical variety and wide emotional range contained in Domenico Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas make each and every encounter a rewarding adventure in which the listener is seldom left untouched. This is Pierre Hantaï’s third solo disc of Scarlatti’s sonatas though only the second in his current series for the Mirare label. It contains several pieces less frequently performed than others and with which many readers may find themselves unfamiliar. The first item, in fact, is one of only seven sonatas of Scarlatti’s that is a straightforward fugue. It is an uncharacteristically didactic piece, even a shade austere compared to the rest of Hantaï’s recital which contains a kaleidoscope of colourful images. What Hantaï seems to be emphasising in his choice is that elusive, somewhat abstracted improvisatory quality present in so many of the pieces and of which the Sonata in E major K 215 provides a well-sustained example. Generally speaking, Hantaï follows Ralph Kirkpatrick’s suggestion that Scarlatti probably intended to group his sonatas into pairs or occasionally threes according to key.

A new disc from Pierre Hantaï is always an event. This recording based around Johann Sebastian Bach, gives pride of place to the Italian Concerto, and makes us rediscover the masterpieces of the cantor of Leipzig in a unique interpretation from the star French harpsichordist. A must have addition to his discography which includes a number of recordings for Mirare: Bach s Well-Tempered Clavier (Book I), Goldberg Variations, and flute sonatas (with Hugo Reyne); three discs of sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti; a programme of works by François Couperin; and most recently a recording of music for two harpsichords by Rameau (with Skip Sempé).

Issu d'une famille de musiciens, Jean Sébastien Bach a consacré sa vie à la musique. Orphelin à 9 ans, son frère aîné Jean-Christophe, organiste à Ohrdruf, va continuer son apprentissage du clavecin et lui faire étudier le chant. Très vite, sa passion et son génie, vont lui permettre de porter à la perfection la plupart des formes de musique. Doté d'un caractère bien affirmé et d'un esprit d'indépendance, il meurt à Leipzig le 28 Juillet 1750 en laissant à l'humanité une oeuvre immense…
