Antonio Soler: Harpsichord Sonatas

“Soler’s keyboard sonatas have until now fared badly in the catalogues, at least on the harpsichord, almost nothing so far recorded being really recommendable; so a disc as excellent as this (down to the notes by RG) is all the more welcome… what emerges still more strongly in the compelling vitality of Virginia Black’s performances is the sheer zest of Soler’s keyboard writing. Playing on a beautiful-sounding copy by Andrew Garlick of a Goujon harpsichord, Virginia Black gives intense pleasure not only by her vivacity but by her subtle shaping of phrases in the slower sonatas, with flexibility never in danger of becoming shapeless. A delightful disc; and please, Miss Black, there are over 100 more Soler sonatas still unrecorded …” – Lionel Salter Gramophone
