More on the album from the 21C site:
“David Greilsammer alternates the fiery vibrancy of keyboard sonatas by Italian Baroque composer Domenico Scarlatti with playfully evocative sonatas for prepared piano by American experimentalist John Cage in Scarlatti: Cage: Sonatas, which showcases the pianist’s ‘penchant for devising programs that challenge our attitudes’ (Telegraph, UK), finding ‘fascinating ways to juxtapose pieces spanning centuries…to highlight surprising musical resonances among works vastly different in language and style’ (New York Times).
Says David, ‘More than 200 years separate the two composers, but their sonatas seem to be so much alike: short, provocative, passionate, full of wild colors, and bursting with fresh rhythms. As true visionaries, ahead of their time, they treated the sonata not as a rigid and momentous form but as a magic space devoted to creation and experimentation.'”
Watch Greilsammer discuss the sonatas below:
