Twenty Sonatas 00-K02253 upc 654979072157
Domenico Scarlatti's fame rightly rests on the hundreds of keyboard sonatas, nearly all in the same binary form, in which he gave free reign to his imagination. In these sonatas he explored new worlds of virtuoso technique using such devices as hand-crossing, rapidly repeated notes, wide leaps in both hands, and countless other means of achieving a devastating brilliance of effect. Twenty of these sonatas are compiled in this folio written for solo piano. Audiences will be amazed at these stunning works by this great keyboard composer.
