    And one must decide. And I'm not able to kill a son to give the other (maybe) the crown of
    the presence here.....
    The first, more brilliant and with "fat" ornamentations, of the second, a little more meditative, less virtuosistic and with more dynamic and phrasing nuances?
    Pulcinella or the sad clown?
    Yes, I know there are more important problems..... but I pray administrator(s) decide, and if one of them is ok, please substitute my older version made with digital.
    I add a poll, to make this homicide more democratic.
    All the best,
    Sandro

    Ooo, this is like the "choose your own ending" books which are popular with kids. How exciting!

    After listening to both, Sandro, I can say that you should delete the second version and keep the first. To me, the first has more thrill and the Spanish-ness of the sonata comes out after the pause.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Yes, Spain and Naples are ever to be hold well in evidence when one plays Scarlatti.
    Thank you for your opinion,

    I prefer the version number I ( so I voted 'first version' despite it is the second in your post), which has more character. But both are nice.
