Antonio Soler: Sonatas from the Morgan Library & Museum.

Rebecca PechefskyThe Morgan Library & Museum recently acquired a manuscript (Cary Ms. 703) that includes several newly discovered sonatas by the great Spanish keyboard composer Antonio Soler. This program will include six sonatas from Cary Ms. 703, as well as two from another manuscript also held by the Morgan Library. Two of the sonatas, R. 184 & 185, have not been recorded to date and will likely be New York premieres.
