    Hi Richard,

    You need not do all the permutations mentioned. To make this more manageable, you might try to accomplish just two things: 1) Why not first try to tame the second notes of the sighs. Once you successfully do it for one, the same technique will apply for all of them. 2) If you achieve that and want to do something with the repeats to differentiate them, look through the LH and see if there are some points of harmonic or counter-melodic interest, and see if you can highlight them more, but not overdoing it. If you can achieve that, I believe those efforts might satisfy everyone here, or at least I hope they would.

    Richard,

    I had a listen to your Scarlatti (if the sheet music research proves true :lol: ) I liked how consistent you were with the ornaments, and your rhythmic separation of the notes. There are so many ornaments in this piece that it sounds baroque without it being a given.

    Thanks for sharing,

    Riley

    Hello, Richard, I could not comment about your playing
    because I am only a beginner,
    but I do like the melody very much and I am so glad that you play it
    because I find it very inspiring.

    I also like the speed you play because that is the speed I like
    and it gives one time to savour the tones and melody.

    Best wishes from Kristinaolga.
