So I guess I am not the only Scarlatti fan on the forum.

Scarlatti not only wrote over 500 sonatas, but he also owned several bevel-drive Ducati motorcycles.

I heard Scarlotti was a pretty good airplane pilot. Is that possible?

Inquiring minds want to know.

Scarlatti was a married gay vegetarian far-right evangelical Christian who loved Liszt, and admired Lang-Lang's musicality.

(Let's see if that works... laugh )

Actually, a piece of scarlatti dipped in milk or hot chocolate makes a yummy treat.

On a more serious note - I'm actually not sure I've ever played any Scarlatti. Would I recognize it if I heard it?

Do you think it's on the juke box at the local biker bar?

i thought scarlatti is a medical condition in which scar tissue forms easily and everywhere on skin, an italian term derived from the latin..scar alati

in english..scar alot
in french...scare beaucoup
in spanish...muchos scarros
in japanese...scaronaya saki

I don't think I've ever heard Scarlatti, but I know that I had to read The Scarlatti Letter in high school.

I'm sorry. I'll stop now.

Another tidbit about young Scarlatti: before deciding to become a composer like his father, he traveled with a group of performing acrobats - gymnasts and tumblers mostly. But do you know what his specialty in this performance realm was?

I seem to recall that Domenico was quite coordinated, and was particularly prized as a hunting companion. He was able to throw at least THREE objects of any size, shape or style and hit his prey with dead-on accuracy.

His K159 in C Major, known affectionately as "La caccia" (the hunt) is his homage to his favorite sport.

He was also able to keep many things going, up in the air so to speak, which accounts for his prolific output.

Hey, that reminds me... has anyone read Scarlatti's biography, "A Reticent Life," by Karamazov?
