Details about Scarlatti : Keyboard Sonatas |  Associated sheet music


During the course of his life, Domenico Scarlatti composed some 555 keyboard sonatas for his royal pupil and patroness, Queen Maria Barbara of Spain.

These sonatas by Scarlatti were originally intended for the harpsichord or the fortepiano.

Each one of Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas consists of a single movement.

They are mostly in binary form.

Many of Scarlatti's sonata feature harmonic audacity in their use of dissonance and unexpected modulations.

Only a small portion of Scarlatti's compositions were published during his lifetime.

It seems that Scarlatti himself oversaw the publication of his most famous collection, the 30 Essercizi per gravicembalo.

These Essercizi or literally exercises were published in London in 1738 or 1739.

They were enthusiastically received throughout Europe, and were championed by the English music historian and foremost English writer on music of the eighteenth century, Charles Burney.

The many sonatas which were unpublished during Scarlatti's lifetime have appeared in print irregularly since the composer's death.

Among Scarlatti's admirers are Frédéric Chopin, Johannes Brahms, Béla Bartók, Dmitri Shostakovich, Heinrich Schenker, Vladimir Horowitz, Emil Gilels, Arturo Benedetti Michelangeli and Marc-André Hamelin.
