About

Domenico Scarlatti’s magnificent sonatas were composed for the Infanta, who became Queen of Spain in 1746. Previous releases in this series have focused primarily on the sonatas contained in Venetian volumes but this one ranges further afield. It includes 13 sonatas from various Italian, Spanish and Portuguese archives notable for their refined ornamentation, brilliant figuration, rapid repeated notes and scales, and wide leaps, as well as music of meditative breadth and athletic vitality.

Domenico Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas have appeared in complete editions on harpsichord, but while these sonatas are popular with today’s audiences and players alike, our ongoing and highly collectable Complete Keyboard Sonatas edition will be one of only a very few recorded on modern instruments.

Previous releases in the series have received critical acclaim. Vol.22 (8573713) performed by Eylam Keshet received a perfect 10/10 score from ClassicsToday.com: ‘Keshet is a born Scarlatti player. This is one of the jewels in Naxos’s ongoing Scarlatti cycle, and not least because it features many sonatas that we don’t often encounter in concert. Please, Naxos, invite Eylam Keshet back for more!’

Vol.7 (8554842), featuring Konstantin Scherbakov, also received praise from Fanfare: ‘Scherbakov’s Scarlatti is fluent and precise, and enjoyable as well’.
