Following his successful recording of Rzewski’s monumental variations (pmr 0037), Christopher Hinterhuber turned to the neglected masterpieces of Antonio Soler, a musical visionary of his time. While his great contemporary Scarlatti prefers a virtuosic, brilliant style, Soler's sonatas have more variations in character and length, often with repetitive patterns which give strong direction to a piece. Some passages clearly anticipate and point towards Haydn and Mozart.
