    Another three quality Scarlatti recordings of yours. I seem to enjoy Scarlatti more and more in the last couple of months where you, Carnevale, Smullyan, Concas, Griner and so on continuously upload recordings of this harpsichord virtuoso. I should try him out myself one day.

    The recordings are up on the site.

    A good idea. Surely you'll enjoy in studying and playing these pieces.

    Bye Robert and all best,
    Sandro.

    P.S.
    Today a very hard recording session with a not easy (for my hands) Mendelssohn-Liszt.
    Tons of very fast arpeggios....but this pieces (Fruhlingslied) is so brilliant and funny....

    Very good again ! You are chucking them out pretty fast indeed ... or probably you have a back catalogue of recordings ?

    The digital sounds a bit tinny and over-bright here. And the sonatas do sound to short without the repeats (IMO Scarlatti's invention is so good that the repeats always pay off, never a dull moment).

    Now only 540 or so to go ? :p

    Both things. I've now 22 recorded Sonatas. I think to record other 2-3 of them (K555 for sure)
    and then to consider and to study other baroque composers/keyboardists (Couperin, Rameau, Balbastre, Duphly, Galuppi, Paradisi, Cimarosa, C.P.E. Bach).

    > The digital sounds a bit tinny and over-bright here.

    As usual, you have reason.

    > And the sonatas do sound to short without the repeats (IMO Scarlatti's invention is so good that the repeats always pay off, never a dull moment).

    Like Webern's aphoristic pieces... :) I have problems with the repeats, and I think they were
    obliged only when cd players and similar didn't exist.
    I play with repeats only the k32 (I'll share it in the next week). A little Quiz: who is the pianist
    (very famous) who played and recorded a few Scarlatti Sonatas without repeats?

    All best, and always congratulations to you and Robert,
    Sandro.

    I know that Valentin Schiedermair, who only recorded a few Scarlatti (as I know of), skip the repeats but I guess you will name a more famous pianist?

    (and I have read the signature ;))

    Glenn Gould. Only 3 Sonatas, wonderfully played (and I am not a fanatic of Gould).

    All best,
    Sandro.
