Baldassare Galuppi was an influential and prolific composer of opera and sacred works who maintains a prominent place in the history of 18th-century Venetian music. He was renowned as a keyboard virtuoso, and the sonatas he wrote throughout his life met with appreciable success - the imaginative and improvisatory Sonata in D being one of the most famous in it's day. These works - played here in world premiere recordings on harpsichord and organ by acclaimed soloist Luigi Chiarizia - present shining examples of Galuppi's art from a splendid and arguably unequalled period of Italian instrumental music.
