The son of Alessandro Scarlatti, who created a new school of opera in Naples, Domenico Scarlatti is particularly renowned for his remarkable keyboard sonatas, of which some 555 survive. Written for performance on the various keyboard instruments of the Spanish court, where Scarlatti was employed for many years, these astonishingly inventive and absorbing sonatas alternate between quick-witted virtuoso effects and deeply expressive lyricism.


Review By Classic FM,

These baroque Scarlatti classics are given a vigorous interpretation by Konstantin Scherbakov

If you are going to play Baroque music on the modern piano then Scherbakov clearly believes in using its potential to the full. His are full-blooded readings that take these stunning miniatures by the scruff of the neck and don’t let go for a second. The opposite of the fastidious, aloof Michelangeli, Scherbakov sounds as though he is reeling from the excitement of a fresh discovery and compels us to listen along with him. © Classic FM
