Product Notes

This collection brings together all of Pieter-Jan Belder's complete recordings of Soler's keyboard works, which he has been releasing over the past eight years on the Brilliant Classics label, to great acclaim. Belder is a true scholar of Soler, and has used both the older Rubio edition of the works as well as Marvin's more updated version, making this release stand out from previous Soler recordings. The collection benefits from the use of different instruments, such as the fortepiano, and the last disc features Soler's truly extraordinary six concertos for double organ, which he apparently wrote for the Infant son of King Charles III. These are performed by renowned organists Maurizio Croci and Pieter van Dijk, who searched high and low for the perfect place to record these highly unusual works - to great effect. The most comprehensive collection of Keyboard Works by Soler! Padre Antonio Soler spent most of his life in the monastery of El Escorial near Madrid in his native Spain. He wrote an astonishing number of 471 sonatas for the keyboard, one-movement works in brilliant instrumental style, charming, sunny and tuneful, they may compete with the famous keyboard sonatas by his contemporary Domenico Scarlatti. Pieter-Jan Belder made fame having recorded the complete Scarlatti Sonatas, and his Soler recordings are on the same high level of musical insight and virtuosity: a sheer delight! As a bonus the recording is included of 6 sonatas for two organs, by renowned organists Maurizio Croci and Pieter van Dijk.
