Igor Kamenz Plays Scarlatti
Composed by: Scarlatti, Domenico
As a child prodigy, Igor Kamenz gave widely admired piano recitals in the former Soviet Union and conducted major orchestras at an early age. After his emigration to Germany in 1978, he maintained a career as a concert pianist. In 2013, a CD featuring his captivating playing came into the hands of Naïve, and marks the start of a new chapter . . . Mr. Kamenz has assembled these eighteen Domenico Scarlatti sonatas played here on a modern concert grand into what he calls a ‘suite in eighteen movements’, whose ordering follows criteria related to the dramaturgy, key and content of the pieces.
