Baldassare Galuppi, Complete Piano Sonatas, Volume 4, Peter Seivewright, MINI-Review

Four volumes to date on the Complete Piano Sonatas of Baldassare Galuppi (1706-1785). This Volume 4 (Divine Arts 25103) is a good place to start because it includes his "Second Piano Concerto," a wisp of the breeze through our ears that comes and goes as quickly as a sunset in winter where I am now.

Galuppi's sonatas are a model of simplicity, lyricality and buoyancy. Peter Seivewright plays it all with the charm and enthusiasm it demands. It is disarming music that makes a point not to be profound and that is refreshing.
