well played! I am not seasoned with Scarlatti's sonatas, due in part of the quantity that he composed, 550. It's not like memorizing Rachmaninov's nocturnes (3 only), there are so many Scarlatti sonatas that some of them sound the same. I hear confidence in your playing and I like it. I don't hear any major errors, or in fact, any slips. Nice. Now start working on the other 547 sonatas because some people here at pianosociety like to have complete recordings :wink: . -JG

Really good recordings! Lovely phrasing and I like your use of dynamics. You seem to have a "rule" that whenever a short passage is repeated, first play it mf, then [i]p[/p]. That makes it more interesting than just a normal reprise.
