This review is from: Domenico Scarlatti: 18 Sonatas (Audio CD)
Alexandre Tharaud is, for me, this year's discovery, now up there with Argerich, Pollini, Gilels, and Uchida: dazzling clarity in technique, a feel for structure and the deep human resonances of the music, and all superbly served by his engineers. K8 in G minor is a particular joy.
Scarlatti is not quite one of the great indispensables - Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Schubert, Chopin - but he is a considerable artist. Merci, Maitre Tharaud.
