Live from Wigmore Hall.

Domenico Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas are characterised by their sheer breadth of invention, the cosmopolitan composer picking up influences from all directions in the 18th century. Alexandre Tharaud showcases a selection of his favourites, alongside an elegy by Liszt for the failed Hungarian uprising in 1848. Chopin's epic second sonata completes the programme, its famous Funeral march movement probably also reflecting the nationalistic feeling of his compatriots in Poland.
