Baldassare Galuppi (1706-1785) was a highly successful composer of operas (he wrote 109 operas...) and instrumental music, working and composing at the courts of London and St Petersburg, before settling in his hometown Venice. His aesthetic credo was: beauty, clearness and good modulation. His music is easy to follow, graceful and pleasing to the ear and heart. This set offers the complete harpsichord concertos, small-scale works, full of brilliant virtuosity and wit. Excellently played by Roberto Loreggian and his group. Loreggian is universally praised for his great achievements for the Frescobaldi Edition.
