Italian composer, Domenico Scarlatti
(1685-1757) is well-known for his Keyboard compositions. His 555 Keyboard Sonatas
remain ever popular to this day, and it is for this reason that this first volume is indispensable to performers of the genre.
This first volume, comprising Sonatas 1-52
, includes the popular and recognised Sonatas in D minor (K. 9), E major (K. 20) and B minor (K. 27). Bearing in mind that Domenico Scarlatti
was a highly competent and popular Keyboard player in his day, so much so that he was employed in the service of two royal families, his Sonatas
are composed with much experience, understanding and expertise, creating an essential addition to the repertoire of all Keyboard players of the Baroque genre. More
