Sandro Ivo Bartoli is busy preparing his next engagements. Highlights for the coming months will be the official launch of a brand new festival in Gargnano, on Lake Garda, and a series of recitals in Germany. Meanwhile the Youtube Channel is growing steadily: recent uploads have featured Respighi’s Concerto in modo misolidio (live) and celebrated works by Chopin, Satie, Haydn and Malipiero’s Piano Concerto No. 3 (also live). Stay tuned for more info…
Bartoli shares his learning process with one of Johann Sebastian Bach’s masterpieces, the “Capriccio on the departure of his beloved brother” BWV 992 in a series of videos released through his Youtube channel.

“Scarlatti / All Sonatas” reached its 386th episode today.

This is a brief message to thank all of you who support my project by subscribing to my Yourube channel, by commenting, and primarily by following the videos, I truly appreciate it! Thank you!
