    Beautifully played. Congratulations, they are among the best Scarlatti's versions I know.
    The conception and the interpretative style (and the instrumental control) reminds Maria Tipo (great pianist).

    All best,
    Sandro

    The K.118 was technically incredible. I have no idea how you are able to produce the fast trills in the way that you do. Marvelous! Musically, this really makes the effect too and I have nothing to niggle about. These recordings even supersedes the previous Scarlatti sonatas you have submitted and I am happy and proud to host them at PS.

    They are both up on the site.

    Splendid performances!

    The K447 is that fast that first I thought my MediaPlayer played it back in double speed or so - until I got used to the idea that maybe it is possible to play in that speed, and so evenly.

    I have to add, that of course all your recordings are superb - but your Chopin Mazurkas are that outstanding from keytouch and expression I never heard anything comparable, also not from the Chopin interpreter giants like Rubinstein, only to mention one. Just needed to say that.

    These are too good to be true! This is the most impressive Scarlatti I have ever heard!

    Robert, please take note that the F major Sonata is not K.447 but K.445.

    Also, I add my praise to such a marvelous rendition of Scarlatti.

    How do you play K. 118 so perfectly with no mistakes?

    It would indeed seem that we have some more world-class Scarlatti on the site with these new recordings. I can't imagine this being done better. The trills in particular are almost superhuman, and the performances as a whole are to match. Wonderful !

    When praise affects you, that is a Good Thing :D
    But no need to be embarrassed. In any repertoire you submitted so far, you can hold yourself with the very best !
