Review By MH94354,April 2011

I am a huge Scarlatti fan, and there is no better way to get to know the master than through Lester - one of the leading Scarlatti interpreters. This particular recording is 'best of' and the sonatas are well selected. Do get the full collection though if you are a Scarlatti fan. There are some treasures to discover here!

I prefer this recording to Pinnock's famous one, because Lester seems to bring out the South -- the Spanish element in Scarlatti's music, the delightful playfulness, with the hint of melancholy -- to perfection.
