Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757)
harpsichord sonatas - close-recorded and enhanced The
recording was made on tape in 1968 by Roger E Cray and was recently digitaly
remastered by Richard Campbell and enhaced using The FIReverb
original recording of the Seymour Hayden performance in a studio was
very dry and was made using a pair of AKG C12 condensers about 20 cm above the strings
and 20 cm behind the damper pads.
Dick Campbell says:
"I have been messing about in PureVerb with the harpsichord recordings
and I have settled on a process which I find very pleasing to listen to.
The high speed articulation of a Scarlatti sonata is not lost, yet there
is a wonderful medium hall presence."
