Description
Anchored by Edoardo Torbianelli's performance on a replica of a Bartolomeo Cristofori pianoforte, this musical re-creation of the Medici court includes Alessandro Scarlatti's elegant ariettas for soprano, traverse flute, and basso continuo, and Francesco Barsanti's Sonata in E Minor, showcasing transverse flutist Marc Hantaļ. The program begins and ends with works by Lodovico Giustini di Pistoia, first composer of music for the modern piano.

"The performances are outstanding. Marķa Cristina Kiehr is simply brilliant in her performances of Scarlatti's ariettas—which are delightful and sometimes very expressive little pieces—and Alessandro Marcello's two cantatas…. Marcello uses the form of the cantata as fixed by Alessandro Scarlatti in his own way, particularly in closing most recitatives with an arioso. Both cantatas include some highly expressive arias. The sonatas are given fine performances by Marc Hantaļ and Chiara Banchini respectively. Edoardo Torbianelli plays a copy by Denzil Wright of one of the surviving instruments by Cristofori, built in 1726 and preserved in the Grassi Museum in Leipzig. It is a beautiful instrument which is played with great sensitivity…. This disc is not only musically captivating because of the repertoire and the performances, but also a historical document which sheds light on an aspect of 18th-century music history which is not fully explored."—Musica Dei Donum
