    The late American harpsichordist Fernando Valenti (1926-1990) is soloist in this 1974 performance (issued on LP in 1975) of the Soler Sonata in C minor. I created this music video from the cassette shown above, issued in the mid-1970s on the Desmar Records label.

    Valenti's NYT obituary is available here: http://www.nytimes.com/1990/09/08/obituaries/fernando-valenti-harpsichordist-and-scarlatti-expert-dies-at-63.html
