Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757) was an Italian composer and pianist from the Baroque era who composed a collection of some 555 works for the keyboard. The son of famed composer Allessandro Scarlatti, Domenico’s musical influence transitioned into the classical era, both in compositional form and by continuing to extend the capabilities of the instrument and demands of the performer. This extensive collection of keyboard compositions range in intentions from stand-alone concert works to technical exercises.
Released in 2017, this album has received critical acclaim and has been played regularly on a number of radio broadcasts including KING FM 98.1 in Seattle, WQXR in New York, and CJSQ-FM Radio Classique in Montreal.
