Description

The deep relationship Dantone’s with the harpsichord began as a child, when he built one for himself. Now, he is one of the most accomplished and recognized harpsichord players in the world.

Handel played by Dantone sounds as if his masterworks were turned into notes running like smoothly flowing water of a musical river.

It might not be a surprise that most of his time at the harpsichord, Dantone is making improvisations in order to revive the composer’s inspiration.

Dive into the very pure essence of Handel’s spirit.

FonoForum (10.02.2006)


"Dantone surprises all listeners thanks to his brilliant technique, the vivacity of phrasing, the elegance of his style, and the wonderful feeling for the proportions" 5 Stars from MUSICA
"At any rate altogether a recording that falls to take a briefer look at this niche production of Händel, if not already done"

American Record Guide (10.02.2006)


"It is an essential recording to own.... These are the best recordings of Handel's last three "great" suites that I have ever heard.... the articulation and overall technique stunning, varied, compellin"

Toccata (09.02.2006)

Le Monde de la Musique (09.02.2006)


"The interpretation of the Italian cembalist Dantone is accomplished" Le Monde de la Musique

Diapason (09.02.2006)


"Superb!": 5 Diapasons in the French magazine Diapason: "Finally an ounce of fantasy! Finally power and freedom in these Suites ... the young creator of the Accademia Bizantina opens the field, multiplies the angles ... animates and colorates the most dry fugues ... Here is the best possible introduction"

musicweb-international.com (09.02.2006)


"The Handelian masterpiece for harpsichord ... The sound quality on this present CD is excellent and allows the detail of the playing to be clearly heard ... It should become a if not the definitive edition"

classicstoday.com (09.02.2006)


"Listen to the Préludes well-adjusted runs and decorations, to the crispy delinated Largo, or the fluent, relaxed Giue. Dantone also shines in the serious, large-scaled Seventh Suite"
