This recital is scheduled for July 2020. It will open for submissions July 1st, and go live July 15th. If you would like to pledge to play something, look at the post after this one.

Any piece by Domenico Scarlatti can be presented, on piano or harpsichord. Multiple submissions are fine, so that you can present a pair of sonatas (which may be what Scarlatti intended), if you wish.

A tiny bit of history
Domenico Scarlatti was born in the same year as J. S. Bach (1685). Not much is known about his early life. His father was the famous opera composer Alessandro Scarlatti. Domenico was born in Naples, but he is remembered today for the more than 500 pieces composed for the harpsichord that he wrote in Spain, where he was a court musician and teacher to Queen Maria Barbara.

He only published one volume of thirty “Essercizi per Gravicembalo” (1738) during his lifetime. The rest of his Sonatas survived in manuscript form preserved by his friends. The Sonatas are catalogued with two different sets of numbers. The older Longo system (the L numbers), and the newer Kirkpatrick system (the K numbers), and you see them referenced both ways, which can be confusing.

Some easier Scarlatti
Alfred published a volume Scarlatti - An Introduction to his Keyboard Works which contains a selection of easier works.
Jane Magrath, in her Repertoire Book, lists 38 sonatas that are used for teaching. These may be the easiest that she mentions:
Sonata in C Major K.73b, L.217
Sonata in d minor, K.32, L.423
Sonata in d minor, K.34, L.7
Sonata in F Major, K.274, L.297

Other Editions
Everybody publishes some Scarlatti. IMSLP has all the sonatas for free. Kirkpatrick, the modern Scarlatti scholar, selected 60 sonatas in two volumes by Schirmer. Maurice Hinson edited several volumes for Alfred. Part of the fun of Scarlatti is finding something that no one else has recorded or played.

Rules:
1) Only pieces written by Scarlatti.
2) All skill levels are welcome (this is the ABF!)
3) Duplicate submissions are fine - we are all unique.
4) Multiple submissions are fine - you can do a pair of sonatas (or more).

See the next post to pledge to play something!

My favorite composer, thanks Sam! I will definitely have to submit to this one, but I will choose the sonatas later. I would like to add that imo the best urtext sheet music for all the sonatas is by Kenneth Gilbert (those are available on imslp.org in good quality scans). At the moment the official number of sonatas is 555, so there are so many to choose from. Another easy one to look at is the minuet K 40.

Are transcriptions allowed? There are some interesting ones...

I keep changing my mind - so rather than take a number that someone else may want, I just put in two placeholders!

OK, here's a bit of trivia for you. I am a bit overwhelmed by the large number of sonatas and finding something I want to invest time in. I went to ArkivMusic, which is supposed to have every current professional recording(!), and found a list of Scarlatti Sonatas and the number of times they have been recorded. I did a bit of unix text processing and came up with a list of the most often recorded sonatas. Here are the ones that have been recorded at last 10 times, in decreasing order (177 sonatas). The first number is the number of recordings. I guess it's not surprising that K380 is at the top of the list.

Very interesting statistics, Sam. I think K380 was a favorite of Horowitz’s, at least, it’s on a couple of my old CDs so it’s not too surprising that is the most recorded of his sonatas. I had no idea that K87, one that I chose, was the 2nd most recorded. Scarlatti composed 550 sonatas of varying difficulty. I’m hoping some more people sign up for the recital.

Has anyone else heard every one of the 555 sonatas? I have (as a hardcore fan) and it is amazing that while there are some similarities, everyone of them is still quite individual...

The problem with recording is that his music is so unforgiving...it takes some practice to get a decent recording and it's easy to make random mistakes. But I will try to submit as many as I can. There are some lovely sonatas that have not been recorded much or only on harpsichord.

Looks good! I am slowly reading through the sonatas (in my abundant spare time!?!), starting with the most popular, trying to decide what to select. Its fun!
