Johan van Veen
MusicWeb International, February 2014

Gregoletto delivers generally outstanding performances. The differences in character between the various sonatas come off convincingly. His playing is lively and the dramatic and expressive aspects of some movements are not lost on him.

It shows that there is more to Galuppi than light-weight stuff as most of these sonatas are of substantial quality and deserve to be part of the repertoire of today’s keyboard players. © 2014 MusicWeb International Read complete review

Gregoletto’s tasteful changes of registration beautifully show off his instrument’s true colors (he plays a Malcolm Rose replica of a dual-manual Pierre Donzelague model), abetted by intimate, crystal-clear sonics. A most attractive release, highly recommended. © ClassicsToday.com Read complete review

American Record Guide, September 2012

Galuppi’s harpsichord sonatas are truly inspired compositions, full of eloquence and invention. As a performer Galuppi was remarkably erudite. His music is also blessed by a wild, brilliant sense of humor.

The delights in these pieces are so numerous…

The seven-minute-long Andante of Sonata No. 10 in A is a longer piece that is one of the high points of this recording. It is languid, sensuous, and larger than life, like Ingres’s Odalisque.

Ilario Gregoletto knows Galuppi’s music as intimately as one knows a close friend or family member. I have no doubt that his graceful and generous style of playing contributed in large part to my newfound love of Galuppi’s music. I truly hope this recording will have a similar effect on a great many listeners. © 2012 American Record Guide Read complete review on American Record Guide online

Fanfare, September 2012

The sonatas are a delight to the ear and more wide-ranging and diverse in style than are the mono-movement sonatas of Scarlatti…

On whichever keyboard you choose to hear these sonatas, they are wonderful pieces in which you will discover something new each time you listen to them.

Wonderful music, excellent playing, a superb specimen of an instrument, and a very fine recording add up to a strong recommendation. © 2012 Fanfare Read complete review
