Cimarosa: Keyboard Sonatas Volume 2 (NAXOS 8.572689)
Usually ships within 1-3 days
Nothing is known about the origins of the keyboard sonatas although from their style and structure they appear to date from relatively early in Cimarosa's career. These attractive, small-scale works were probably intended for study purposes or for domestic performance. The crystalline brilliance of many of the fast outer movements is very appealing and the slow movements, although somewhat conservative in style, often possess a surprising expressive depth. Of the first volume (8.570718) ClassicsToday wrote: 'Sangiorgio's clean, even-handed, excellently engineered performances are ideal.'
