MOSCOW, September 2. /TASS/. Sound-recording firm “Melody” has introduced a new disc by pianist Polina Osetinskaya with a performance of works by Johann Sebastian Bach and Domenico Scarlatti. TASS said Monday in a press-service of the company.
The disc contains five sonatas by Scarlatti, “Italian Concerto” Bach and his chorales in the piano transcriptions of Alexander siloti, Egon Petri and Wilhelm Kempf.
“Performce Ossetian characterized by unusual programs, paradoxical and at the same time deeply thoughtful comparison of the composers’ names. With the exception of “Italian Concerto” in which the great Cantor paid tribute to the Italian tradition of harpsichord music, his Protestant chorales, polyphonic cycles during the Baroque period seemed infinitely far from sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti, with their overflowing southern Neapolitan temperament, — noted in press service. Today we look at them differently, modern culture in an amazing way not only smoothed their musical “contradiction”, but allowed to hear in this music a certain commonality and unity”.
Bach and Scarlatti were born in 1685. During the life of the one and the other became known outstanding performers on the harpsichord and the organ; his keyboard work had a profound influence on his contemporaries and subsequent era, although the creative interests of both were not exhausted keyboards.
