SEBASTIÁN ALBERO (1722-1756): 6 Recercatas, Fugas & Sonatas.
Catalogue Number: 04R031
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: Albero showed his complete mastery in all existing styles in these unusual pieces. The Recercatas are free, improvisatory preludes without barlines, in which the imagination of the performer/composer is given free reign. The Fugues are the Baroque form par excellence, and Albero wrote them in grand style of substantial proportions (in all but one piece, they are longer than the other two parts combined). The Sonatas are single movement pieces in binary form, much like Scarlatti’s sonatas, revelling in brilliant keyboard virtuosity. 2 CDs. Alejandro Casal (harpsichord).
