By Sid Nuncius #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 22 May 2010
Format: Audio CD
This set is a major investment, but one that is well worth making. It contains 34 CDs of truly wonderful music, superbly played. Scarlatti's 555 keyboard sonatas form a remarkable and very rewarding body of work and they are immensely varied - passionate, serene, humorous... every mood or emotion you could think of is here somewhere. I never tire of them, and always find something fresh and new when I listen to them.

You do need to like the harpsichord if you're going to buy this set. I certainly do, and especially when it is played as well as this. These recordings by Ross are regarded as landmarks by many, and I wouldn't argue with that. His playing is technically brilliant, and he brings out all the variety in these amazing pieces. What also shines through is his sheer love for the music - every single sonata is played as though it really means something and he makes this monumental compendium a pleasure from start to finish.

I cannot recommend this set too highly. I have owned and loved the original Erato discs for years and still play them regularly and with immense pleasure. It is a set to last a lifetime and if you have any interest in baroque music or the keyboard in general, I urge you to give it a try.

This recording is an essential for any lover of the Baroque.
Ross here created, I feel, the yardstick recording by which any future Scarlatti cycle will be judged.
I cannot adequately review this performance, simply because any review would end up as a meaningless jumble of superlatives - everything about this recording is exactly as the most particular listener would want it. The accompanying notes are exhaustive and highly informative.
Listening to this, one cannot fail to be moved to sorrow that Ross did not live longer - but at least he left us this monument to Scarlatti's, and his own, genius.

Actually my 5-star rating doesn't tell the whole story. I have to admit, I got through an initial auditioning of 22 of the 34 CDs, making it policy not to listen to more than one disc per day, and ended up with harpsichord and Scarlatti sonatas indigestion, and putting the whole set in my 'out tray' to pass on to a local charity shop.

I really do love Scarlatti sonatas, honestly! But it was a plain mistake of mine to buy a huge set like this - especially played on the harpsichord. I found myself increasingly bugged by the largely unvarying volume of the twangy harpsichord sound, and the incessant activity of the music. That, despite the excellent playing by Scott Ross, and the excellent recording quality - though consistently set at too high a level: I needed to reduce the volume by 3dB to make it more acceptable. The harpsichord isn't a loud instrument, and so it doesn't make sense to have it so loud in a recording.

I would recommend anyone thinking of buying this set to think carefully about what they would be taking on. Even with the more varied sound of a piano rendition there would still be the issue of a certain similarity of music through the huge number of sonatas, and, however much you love certain individual ones, you might well end up with the same sort of surfeit that hit me.

I had read so many glowing descriptions of this recording that I was concerned my expectations might be too high.
On the contrary, it's time we re-evaluated our opinion of the harpsichord. I had already accustomed myself to
the harpsichord from the Bach gesamt Werk which is excellent. Ross elevates the instrument to another level.
Oh, and Scarlatti does his bit too.

This wonderful set has some rudimentary copy protection, but if you download the brilliant and free FairStars CD Ripper you can quickly and painlessly have all 34 CDs on your computer in the format you require - MP3 good for portable devices.
