:shock: ...is the whole piece suppose to be "p" ??? I am not familiar with Scarlatti's sonatas (due in part because there are so many of them). To me it sounds like you are just tickling the keys. (Which shows mastery and muscle control.) Maybe it is because of the sonata but I was just waiting for the "ff"...it never came. Kind of a let down. Nevertheless it is a good recording. I have nothing else to say.

Another perfectly judged Scarlatti sonata. I can't see how it could be done better. There is more than enough dynamic contrast in this one (people expecting a ff climax should perhaps be listening to Liszt instead ...)

I have put this one on the site - what a shame it was the 'last'. Anyway we have a wonderful and high-quality Scarlatti selection now, thanks to you and Graziella ! Thank you once again.

I was thinking of a Mozart-like climax which is more gentle than Liszt's. Oh well. :|

Yep really good as all other recordings provided so far. I actually downloaded all your Scarlatti links today and had them as background when I worked and they are all very good. Kept me more listening than working ;).
