“Bach’s Preludes are on holiday at the Mediterranean” – the wonderful alliance of polyphonic fluency and musical delight in Domenico Scarlatti’s piano sonatas could be described thus. Originally composed for harpsichord, these pieces exhaust the technical and tonal possibilities of keyboard instruments in such a refined manner that pianists have never been able to resist playing them on modern pianos, whether grand or upright. We have chosen one of the most popular sonatas with a moderate level of difficulty (level 4/5) from our extensive three-volume Urtext edition (HN 395, 451, 476). This single edition is an asset for teaching and provide an ideal introduction to Scarlatti’s fascinating musical language.
The printing is crystal clear and although marked as "piano sonatas" they are thankfully devoid of any dynamic or other editorial markings that often mar the composer's original intention. (...) Those wishing to explore the delights of Domenico Scarlatti's sonatas would do well to purchase at a modest price, these "taster" volumes from Henle.
