SCARLATTI 555 : LA FOLLE AVENTURE DU FESTIVAL DE RADIO FRANCE OCCITANIE MONTPELLIER
"Kenneth Weiss played through the 17 Scarlatti sonatas without the slightest pause, totally concentrated in a faultless keyboard performance. His teacher Gustav Leonhardt comes to mind when listening, the same respect for the score, the same energetic playing and a certain gravitas in the interpretation but that in no ways diminishes the virtuosity or singularity of Scarlatti's compositions. Kenneth Weiss uses the lower keyboard only, a necessity with these virtuosic sonatas, sometimes adding a bass octave, aiming for homogeneous articulation but also an exultation of sonority in the sequencing of these 17 dazzling sonatas".
