Domenico Scarlatti The Complete Sonatas - MP3 Edition


"Richard Lester's coverage of the complete Scarlatti keyboard sonatas is very impressive indeed. Lester's credentials are impeccable but, more importantly, he is obviously very enthusiastic about this repertoire and his spontaneous playing conveys that dedication. His style is admirably flexible and altogether most winning." The Penguin Guide
