Album Notes
The child of a famous opera composer, Domenico Scarlatti was a virtuoso harpsichordist who condensed much of the wit and drama of contemporary opera into each of his more than 550 keyboard sonatas. He also incorporated folk elements from his native Naples, and especially from the Iberian Peninsula where he spent most of his career in the service of Maria Barbara, the Portuguese princess who became Queen of Spain. Maria Barbara was Scarlatti’s principal student and she must have been an impressive keyboard player given the difficulty of the sonatas Scarlatti composed as exercises for her study. Scarlatti seems to have had unlimited imagination, and the variety among these hundreds of miniature masterpieces is astounding. He himself described his music as “ingenious jesting with art” and indeed these sonatas are great fun both to play and to hear. Enjoy!
