This recording is the first volume of the complete harpsychord works composed by Paradisi in London in 1754.

"From a harmonic, melodic and rhythmic point of view, these sonatas demonstrate the strong influence the Neapolitan School had on his style.
As is well known, this school produced not only important composers of operas, but also prominent harpsichordists. These are scholarly, refined masterpieces of considerable technical mastery demonstrating a real sense of the instrument's tone as well as a profound understanding of the instrument's sound quality.
In particular, the first movement of the Sonata I (Allegro) has a tripartite structure and monothematic form, which is clearly organized, coherent, well balanced and efficient. As is also true of the sonatas that follow, the rhythm - both pulsating and harmonic, the structure of the melody, the tonal connections and the cadence, constantly accompany and intensify the elegant phrasing. The piece is brilliant, even though cantabile and not immune to stylistic influences either of opera or typically instrumental music. The later bring to mind Alessandro Scarlatti's toccata-style works, the sonatas of his son, Domenico and other Neapolitan composers such as Francesco Durante and Nicola Porpora. As expected and as can be verified in the compositions that follow, the use of particular tonal effects is especially efficacious thanks to the attentive distribution of the parts, a varied and interesting texture and a spacing and articulation of the notes perfectly suited to the expressive capabilities of the harpsichord. All of which is integrated in a refined and sophisticated concept of the technique for keyboard instruments."

We are herewith presenting the second CD of the complete harpsichord work (18 Sonatas in total) by Giovanni Benedetto Platti (Padua 1697 - Wuerzburg 1763). We have therefore the chance to listen from Sonata VI up to Sonata IX. For sure all Platti's work demonstrates his intention to broaden the stylistic horizon of the time, starting from a quintessential Baroque foundation and evolving to touch in edge of Classicism. Fausto Torrefranca, one of the major Italian critcs and the first one to study Platti, wrote in his fundamental and monumental publication "Giovanni Benedetto Platti e la Sonata moderna": "How to portray Giovanni Benedetto Platti […] He was a true artist, it's undoubtly, but he was also a great artist and must take his place in history among the most important authors of instrumental music. […] As far as music for harpsichord is concerned […] his style stands out over that of his contemporaries. To have a clear idea, just choose and read one after another, those works in which he had been able to instill his true personality in the most concise and brilliant way and he conquered a place in the world of the indisputable, the highest sphere of art."

For the first time, a recording - which includes 4 CDs - with the complete Sonatas for harpsichord composed by Giovanni Benedetto Platti (Padua 1697 - Wuerzburg 1763).
Among the five Sonatas proposed within this first CD, there are examples of works that are not particularly difficult from a technical point of view as well as examples of extreme virtuosity, most likely to demonstrate all of the expressive capabilities of the instrument. These Sonatas demonstrate all the modern techniques typical of keyboard instruments, as well as some 'special effects' that, in the case of Giovanni Benedetto, remind us that this is the use of the keyboard by a maestro schooled in several sectors of the practice of the eighteenth century music. Generally speaking, regarding the tempo, the first thing that emerges immediately is a marked vivacity and an ardent sense of invention that Torrefranca shortly described with the term, rhythmic impressionism. As to form, a variety of models and structures are used. The first Sonatas offer a four movement cycle and wide ranging pieces, mostly in a monothematic form. Nonetheless, in the overall corpus of these admirable harpsichord works, all possible prototypes of the modern sonata form are present, in fact both bipartite and tripartite structures are herein present, both monothematic and bithematic, often with elaborated segments of varying length, depending on the sonata and of course with respect to the expressive, sometimes dramatic, sense of the composition.
Among the more significant aspects of Platti's pieces for harpsichord, we can find his extraordinary elegant sense of musical instrumental color, as demonstrated through the use of sophisticated, splendid, and effective blending of tones. Just as elegant is the musical writing, a marvelous combination of old techniques contrasting with modern techniques borrowed from the chamber sonatas for strings and the Italian schools for keyboard instruments.
Mainly the texture is essential, in two parts, nonetheless there are a number of harmonically rich and dense passages that recall the concerto grosso of the Venetian School. The execution of the Sonatas in this recording is mostly based on the edition appended to the aforementioned opus by Torrefranca, currently still the most complete and already at that time, subject to modern scientific editorial criteria.

Harpsichord Pascal-Jospeh Taskin, 1769, copy - J.D. Dulcken, copy

"In reference to the biography of Pietro Domenico Paradies (Paradisi) (1707-1791), we have already mentioned it in the preface of the CD dedicated to his first six Sonate di Gravicembalo, published in 1754 by the London publisher John Johnson along with the subsequent ones recorded here.
To underline the importance of the harpsichord (clavicembalo) production of this Neapolitan composer, we would like to remind that, besides the existence of a multitude of manuscript material, there are also numerous productions, following one another, subsequent to the first one, in particular the Parisian one of Le Clerc (1765) and the London ones of Welcker (1770), Blundell (1781), Preston (1790), Longman & Broderip (1790).
It is about an editorial tradition which lasted for about fifteen years, very much indicative of the fame that Paradies reached in both quality of composer and teacher and concert performer. It is not easy to fully appreciate whether the twelve sonatas in the subject have been conceived at the same time or in different periods. The variety of stylistic references, the cross- references to a typical Neapolitan taste as well to the French one, resorting to the technique of Domenico Scarlatti as well as to the one of Johann Christian Bach, would lead us to assume different chronological moments; however it may also be a wisely handled versatility.
In the analysis of these monuments glorifying the triumph of the galant style, another element that would lead us to reflect could be the character typically of "harpsichord" of some works contrasting others with movements typically of the "Piano". (by Filippo E. Ravizza)
