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.

Baldassare Galuppi was born on the Italian island of Burano in 1706, and died in Venice in 1785. His life was an extremely eventful and productive one for the son of a humble barber and violinist in the village band. After his father gave him his first musical education, he composed his first opera at the age of 16, following this by taking up studies with Lotti. A steady flow of operas followed, and Goldoni became his regular librettist – distinguishing his operas from a literary viewpoint as well as a musical one. He lived in London from 1741-3, and in St Petersburg from 1765-8. He later became Vice Chapel Master in St Marks, Venice in 1748 before becoming Chapel Master in 1762.

Apart from Galuppi’s vast body of work for the opera house, he was also a prolific composer of concertos and chamber music. These CDs contain his entire harpsichord concertos, which are generally in the traditional fast–slow–fast pattern of the classical concerto. Cadenzas had started to become fashionable in the mid 18th century, and the soloist has taken the liberty of utilising cadenzas composed by Muzio Clementi for use in these recordings.
