Anna Paradiso: Cembalo Paradiso

£12.50

Anna Paradiso’s stunning harpsichord debut

New musicological research and a typically Italian temperament are the primary ingredients in this, Anna Paradiso’s powerful and individual debut CD. This solo recital album explores masterpieces in the harpsichord repertoire: baroque works from Italy, Germany and France, and even a wonderful British concerto from the 20th century – a little-known jewel. The result is a fascinating journey through all the main musical forms and genres – toccatas, sonatas, concertos, and suites.
