        A great selection of Scarlatti's sonatas with a long and interesting introduction by Kirkpatrick who knows what he's talking about when it comes to Scarlatti sonatas.

        Cette édition d'une soixantaine de sonates de Domenico Scarlatti par Ralph Kirkpatrick nous offre une présentation et un choix judicieux des plus belles pièces pour clavier du compositeur par le grand spécialiste et interprète de son oeuvre, en deux volumes de musique bien gravés et agréables à consulter.

        A good selection of earlier works, well presented and very clear text. Certain things lacking though : Nearly everything left to the performer to interpret, including ornament execution and most notably fingering (absent), although this is not essentially a bad thing overall. A good volume for amateur study that will enhance a players technique. Many works in this volume are quite difficult, and some that were probably written for the double manual harpsichord are very awkward in places on a single keyboard. Worth the effort though as these pieces represent the non plus ultra of binary keyboard composition.
        This volume contains well laid out and nicely written sonatas, the music itself is beautiful, however as in most Schirmer editions for keyboard music there is limited, if any fingering written in.
