VARVARA, piano

 

From the great German Baroque to the Hispanic Preclasicism (suites and sonatas by Bach, Händel, Soler and Blasco de Nebra)

 

The eighteenth century is at the same time the climax and disappearance of one of the main keyboard instruments of the Baroque: the harpsichord. Varvara brings together a selection of works from that period: the Suites by Händel and Bach, from the first quarter of the century, a selection of mid-century Sonatas by Antonio Soler, and two of the six Sonatas for harpsichord and forte piano by Blasco de Nebra from the second half of the eighteenth century.
