Hi everyone just asking your opinions :)

Should I play Scarlatti Sonatas with pedal or not? My opinion is to not use pedal

Yours?

I never really pay attention to pedal markings (maybe because I use a keyboard which is alot quieter than a real piano). So I touch the pedal when it is needed for my keyboard. I can't say a whole lot for pedaling on a real piano because I do not get around to playing on them all to often. I hope this helps :wink:
