Christoph Ullrich on Youtube:

Sonata in g moll K 8, Allegro
Sonata in C major, K 487, Allegro

 

"Scarlatti's Birthday Party" - this was the title of a performance by the English comedy troupe Natural Theatre Company, which I went to see in 1985. Very virtuoso and very funny. The fundamental idea was that in 1985 the whole world was celebrating the 300th birthday of J.S. Bach, and also a few were celebrating that of G. F. Handel. Scarlatti's 300th birthday was celebrated by no-one at the time! In "Scarlatti's Birthday Party", there was some particularly absurd recorder playing, which actually suited his music pretty well, even though he wrote nothing for this instrument. For part 5 of his recordings of the complete 555 keyboard sonatas presented here, Christoph Ullrich doesn't need a recorder anyhow! His reverence towards this father of virtuoso keyboard music is always enthralling and rich in variety and has us on the edge of our seats. But then, for two fascinating bonus tracks, Ullrich brings the well-known percussionist Eric Schaefer into the recording studio. There they improvise together on two of the previously recorded sonatas. The result rounds off part 5. We can also reckon on more such surprises in the future!

Piano News 2/16 (03/01/2016):

Bei Domenico Scarlatti hat man allein mit Blick auf den Riesenberg an 555 Sonaten nun mal eine Menge zu tun. Hier den Überblick zu behalten und der Individualität jedes einzelnen kurzen Werkes gerecht zu werden, ist eine Kunst. more...

Klassik heute (12/22/2015):

--> zur Originalbesprechung

Im Verlauf von Folge 15 seiner Gesamtaufnahme aller 555 Scarlatti-Sonaten erweist sich Christoph Ullrich nicht nur als hellhörig musikalischer Geschichtenerzähler, sondern – nämlich im Zauberreich der Triller und ihrer fingerartistischer Unter- und Nebenarten – als pianistischer Vogelkundler. more...
