Hank Knox's new album released on Leaf Music!
Hank Knox's new album "Scarlatti: Essercizi Per Gravicembalo" is now available on all streaming platforms!
Like so many musicians, Award-winning artist and early-music musician Hank Knox found himself with a lot of time on his hands during the pandemic. He spent the past 10 months completely immersed in Domenico Scarlatti’s only authorized publication, a collection of thirty sonatas first published in 1739 in London, England. Knox’s recording of the Essercizi Per Gravicembalo offers the listener a deep dive into Scarlatti’s richly inventive and imaginative musical world.
Essercizi Per Gravicembalo, meaning “Exercises for Harpsichord,” is a virtuosic collection that has been in uninterrupted print since its publication 275 years ago. The collection was dedicated to King John V of Portugal, father of Scarlatti’s longtime pupil and patron, Queen Maria Barbara of Spain. Essercizi Per Gravicembalo was recorded by Hank Knox in April 2021 at Église St. Augustin, Mirabel, QC.
Hank Knox will present a concert to launch his new album at the Redpath Hall of the McGill University on November 12th, 2021. Learn more here.
