Scarlatti - 4 sonatas

Postby RichNocturne » Fri Jun 29, 2012 6:41 am

Here's 4 Scarlatti sonatas from my doctoral recital.
I programmed 4 in the following structure:
1. Fast, Major mode
2. Slow, minor mode
3. Upbeat in 3, Major mode (like a scherzo)
4. Upbeat, in "gigue" style, in Major mode.

I tried to construct it in a Classical sonata form, to keep some interest.

Anyway, hope you enjoy.
The last one in G major gave me some trouble, but I decided against editing it.
Comments and criticisms are always appreciated.

File names are again incorrect. Please fix and re-upload. Another tip, if you are unsure how to name the file, go to the main site and look at the file names for other recordings in the same group. And did you use a compression rate of 192? I can't check that currently, but in case you didn't, then you need to fix that too.
