Christian Ihle Hadland Plays Domenico Scarlatti
Label: Simax Classics
Hadland, Christian Ihle
Domenico Scarlatti played by Christian Ihle Hadland is something everyone ought to hear. Hadland has chosen 15 sonatas that display a more nuanced picture of Scarlatti than many of us are used to hearing. Reviewers have on several occasions pointed out the variations in sound treatment, subtle art of phrasing and singing tone so characteristic of Hadland’s playing, alongside a strong sense of pulse and natural fluctuations of tempo. Widely recognized as one of Norway’s most exciting pianists, Hadland (b. 1983 in Stavanger) is a highly sought-after both recital and as a chamber musician and has appeared several times in prestigious venues and festivals such as Wigmore Hall, Risør Chamber Music Festival, the Schleswig Holstein Music Festival and Kissinger Sommer.
