I have the EMB Urtext "200 sonatas" collection, which features this sonata in volume 1. I haven't got the score with me, but I'm fairly sure there's nothing in it to indicate you should go into the major for the ending.

I do apologise. I was going from my memory of playing it through a few times but not actually learning it. Now I have got round to checking the score, I find that there is indeed an A natural marked in the last bar in my copy. :oops: If I'm reading the textual notes right (for some reason they are only in German, although the introduction is translated into English and Hungarian) it cites Kirkpatrick's facsimile edition of the manuscripts as principal source.

I have Henle's edition of Bach's Inventions and Sinfonias (2- and 3- part Inventions.) Sinfonia No. 9 finishes in a major chord in that edition. How it spoils the effect of all that has come before. It is the same here.

Absolutely the two greatest works of all times (I leave out 'big choral' on purpose). With the St.John Passion hard on their heels. I would hate to have yo choose between them.

These are the absolute pillars of all choral literature ... with one possible exception: What about the St. Luke Passion of Penderecki? I think i make a tripod of the 3! Wait, what about the War Requiem by B. Britten? Ok, now I'm up to a four-leged stool! Other possibilities include Handel's Messiah (2+hours and composed in 28 days!) and the Symphony of Psalms by Stravinsky! my $2 worth. :)

Verdi's Requiem is not half bad either... and Mozart's... and Dvorak's Stabat Mater, Janacek's Glagolitic Mass.....
Seems like we've gone OT again. At least it was the OP started it :P

Ok, I propose that if we say Mass, then it is Bach alone!
If we say Passion, then it is Bach and Pendercki.
If we say Requiem, then it must be Mozart, Brahms (A German R.), Verdi, Britten.
If we say choral symphonies, then Beethoven and Stravinsky.
If we say Oratorio, then Handel and Mendelssohn
Let's just not say Stabat Mater
There. It's done. :P
Wait a minute, I thought this was the Piano Society?


Edit: added Oratorio and corrected spelling of Mendelssoh[n]

Hi John,
I really feel sorry to have discovered that wonderful gem here so lately, somehow I must have overseen it.

That´s a wonderful, deep and soulful interpretation of that well-known sonata. You play it with so much sublety and highest artistry! I think, you elaborate the wistful and melancholique mood of that piece in all details and every motif and note is feeled deeply and there are so much nuances in you interpretation!

So, that´s simply brilliant! Continue so!

This is a beautiful performance of this piece...I've not heard this one, but I really enjoyed your recording.
I just started learning some Scarlatti (I've never played him before), and so I listened to about 10 discs of Scarlatti on Naxos to see what I liked and familiarize myself with his music, and I found that these slower ones in the minor keys are the most depressingly beautiful music ever written for the keyboard, especially on the piano. I think I'll look into this piece.

thanks for you sharing---this was beautiful.
Rich

Hi John,

Listened to your Scarlatti.
Nice interpretation. Thank you for posting.
The recording quality is very good as well.
Where did you record and what did you use for recording?

Thanks for posting, waiting for new material from you.
