I’m curious if there is a name for the technique you see in Scarlatti sonatas 141 and 455 where the pianist plays rapid fire single notes by striking the same key with multiple fingers in succession. Looks to me like 5,4,3,2 in a extremely fast sweeping motion on the same key.

I've always called it "changing fingers" (on repeated notes).

I don't think it qualifies as "finger substitution," since that term applies to changing fingers on a key that is held down.

When referring to the virtuosic sort, most just call them repeated notes, and the technique is implied, as it is peculiar to repeated notes. Like octaves, you know when someone means the virtuosic sort.

I’m familiar with it as ‘single note repetition’. I don’t know if anything is the ‘official’ name of the technique

3,2,1 is the standard fingering, certainly in Kk141.

In Kk455, where the repeated notes are in groups of four, 4,3,2,1 is used.
