Program Notes on Sonata in G minor -- Urtext by Scarlatti, D. :

This Sonata in G minor by Domenico Scarlatti was recently discovered in a manuscript in the archives of the Escolania de Montserrat.

Like Scarlatti's other keyboard sonatas, it was originally composed for harpsichord or fortepiano.

Please note the following points regarding our edition of Scarlatti's Sonata in G minor :
  • In measure 1, the dotted slur does not appear in the source but seems justified by analogy with similar passages
  • In measure 6, on the last beat for the right hand, both D's in parentheses do not appear in the source but again seem justified by analogy
  • In measure 16, the cadential trill does not appear in the source but is nonetheless required here
Please take note also that the editor has included in this score performance suggestions for the ornaments in accordance with the performance practice of the Baroque period.

Also, we suggest adding further ornaments on repeats even if they do not appear in the score (you can hear such ornaments in our sheet music video for this sonata).

Adding such ornaments was a common performance practice in Domenico Scarlatti's time.
