Born in Bari, Italy, Anna Paradiso moved to Sweden in 2006 and is today one of the most prominent harpsichord players in her adoptive country, with concerts as soloist and continuo player at home, as well as in the rest of Europe, the USA, Japan, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Lebanon. For “Paradiso plays Paradisi”, she is recorded 10 Sonatas from Pier Domenico Paradies. The very special thing about this recording is this: Anna played on 3 fantastic instruments: French harpsichord by Francois Paul Ciocca (Riccia 2008) after Nicolas & Francois Blanchet (1730); Original fortepiano Broadwood (London 1802); Original Swedish clavichord Pehr Lindholm (Stockholm 1794).As Anna Paradiso writes in her liner notes to this recording ‘the history of music is full of fine composers who, for one reason or another, have been largely forgotten.’ In the case of Pietro Domenico Paradisi, it is only thanks to his Sonate di gravicembalo that he has escaped complete obscurity. Even his name is less than certain – is it Paradies or Paradisi?… We know that he sometimes added the epithet ‘Napolitano’ to his signature, and it’s presumed that he was born in or around Naples ca. 1706. He may have studied with Nicola Porpora, but otherwise little is known about him before his arrival in England in 1746. There he composed an opera, but was primarily recognised as a harpsichord teacher and performer.

The collection of twelve sonatas was first published in London in 1754, and ten of them have been selected for this amply filled programme (almost 88 minutes of music!). The sonatas appeared at a time when the clavichord remained in use, the harpsichord enjoyed its glory days and the fortepiano was beginning to come into its own. Anna Paradiso has therefore chosen to play on all three instruments – with the clavichord and the fortepiano being historic examples from 1792 and 1802 respectively. Highly acclaimed for her recordings of solo works and chamber music by the Swedish composer Johan Helmich Roman, Anna Paradiso now lets us enjoy the playfulness and expressivity of Paradisi’s approach to keyboard playing.
