Notes and Editorial Reviews

Very few artifacts remain to tell the tale of Domenico Scarlatti: among them, one portrait, one letter in his own hand, and fifteen volumes of keyboard music, treasured by the Queen of Spain. Born in Naples in 1685, Domenico Scarlatti was the son of the great composer Alessandro Scarlatti. An accomplished player, Domenico Scarlatti's legacy of sonatas for solo harpsichord is as huge as his history is small. Imaginative, sensitive and full of life, his sonatas reflect the melodies and fiery spirity of Spain, where Scarlatti enjoyed great fame as a musician of the Imperial Court from 1728 until his death in 1757.
