Concerto No. VI in D major for two organs Padre Antonio Soler
Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti (1685–1757) was an Italian composer who spent much of his life in the service of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families.
Couperin belonged to a family of several composers from the mid-17th to mid-19th centuries. He was organist in the chapel of Louis XIV at Versailles, and was the greatest French master of the harpsichord.
Carl Philipp Emanuel Bach (1714 – 1788) was a German classical period musician and composer. He was a crucial composer in the transition between the baroque and classical periods, and one of the founders of the classical style, composing in the rococo and classical periods. His second name was given in honor of his godfather Georg Philipp Telemann, a friend of Emanuel's father.
Claude Balbastre (December 8, 1724 – May 9, 1799) was a French composer, organist and harpsichordist. He was one of the most famous musicians of his time.
Antonio Soler (1729-83) was a monk of Monasterio de San Lorenzo de El Escorial and also the choir master. He composed much church music, mainly for choir, and for the Royal Court.
