Aline Zylberajch, pianoforte from Cristofori.
Una nuova inventione per Maria Barbara,
Aline Zylberajch, pianoforte
« Reflecting the exceptional sound-world of Ambronay Abbey, Ambronay's CDs initiate musical experiences opening up a world of imagination and emotions. "A new invention for Maria Barbara ?" The Queen of Spain and Portugal ordered from Bartolomeo Cristofori, creator of the pianoforte, five of his precious instruments for her music master, Domenico Scarlatti. Denzil Wraight, pre-eminent specialist of early Italian keyboards, has built the magnificient 56-note single-manual Cristofori-Ferrini instrument used on this recording - from which Aline Zylberajch unfolds a wealth of colours and shades hitherto unknown. As aesthetic, emotional revelation.
What the press says :
« A extraordinary instrument reveals to us the secretworld of Scarlatti. An important chapter is finally opened; that of the performance of Scarlatti at the pianoforte. »
