Review By John Bell Young,Clavier,March 2000

"Domenico Scarlatti's approximately 550 keyboard sonatas are models of expressive brevity. Unlike Beethoven's Hammerklavier Sonata, which takes nearly an hour to play, Scarlatti's longest sonatas last just seven or eight minutes. This kind of economy makes it possible for Michael Lewin to fit nearly two dozen of them on a splendid recording, Domenico Scarlatti, Complete Keyboard Sonatas, Volume 2.
