Scarlatti: Complete Keyboard Sonatas

Works: Complete Keyboard Sonatas, Vol. 1
Performer: Carlo Grante

Scarlatti is one of my favorite composers ever and his keyboard sonatas are one of the joys of my life. I never get tired of listening to them.

I’m not going to admit how many recordings of these sonatas I have. A lot. However, I only have two complete versions: Scott Ross and Pieter-Jan Belder. Both are on harpsichord and are gorgeous. I love the harpsichord (I own one) but my first love is the piano. I’m anxiously awaiting a complete set performed on piano. Naxos has been releasing a volume at a time at a slow drip so I’m still waiting.

Carlo Grante started a complete set in the 90’s (which I bought) but I think the record label went under and the project came to a halt. He’s back with a new, ongoing complete set and I hope he gets to record all of them this time. Volume Three was released recently so I’m optimistic.

Scarlatti: Newly Discovered Sonatas

June 4, 2012

Composer: Domenico Scarlatti
Works: The Complete Sonatas, Volume VII – Appendices and Diversities
Performer: Richard Lester

Since I already own two complete sets of Scarlatti sonatas on harpsichord I don’t feel I need a third. However this particular volume contains 13 “newly discovered” sonatas so it’s worth having for that alone.

I don’t know if anyone else has recorded these new sonatas so I need to investigate further.
