Domenico Scarlatti

October 26, 1685 - July 23, 1757
born in Naples, Italy, composed during the Baroque period
Italian Baroque composer Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757) is remembered for some 555 keyboard sonatas, primarily written while he served as court composer in Portugal and Spain. He also wrote operas and other vocal music, following in the footsteps of his father Alessandro Scarlatti, but the keyboard music stands out above the rest of his oeuvre. The one-movement sonatas are recognized as cornerstones of the keyboard repertoire, bridging the high Baroque and the galant styles. ~ Patsy Morita, Rovi

Similar? Not hardly. Try 555 distinctly different pieces. Coming back to Scarlatti after some decades has made me realize the genius of his work.

I have only recently this wonderful resource for the music I love the best, classical! It was a chance encounter while enjoying a scotch at a local veteran's club, and I am so very great full we met!

Scarlatti brings a smile to your heart -- these are uplifting, endlessly inventive, sparkling musical creations.

This music is the best . Classic music does wonders for the mind and soul.

Usually I think classical music is too intellectual for studying to but maybe Scarlatti would work. It sure is nice. Anyway u slice it, classical music is good brain food. The people that do use it for studying are right in doing so.

I really like scarlatti's music.

If one ponders the notion of background music, or as some might call it musique, one may find that Scarlatti is rightly applicable to this application. . . Applicable indeed!
Report as inappropriate
this is not background music. if you listen to it with divided attention such as while doing homework, you're wrong. Scarlatti is meditative, capricious, tragic, and many other things, but he is never light enough to be background fodder.

Scarlatti definitely has some of the top piano sonatas. So much depth and variety! It's also perfect music for multitasking ! I swear it helps me focus.

I have loved Scarlatti for decades. I just hope my Vivaldi-Scar l a t t i station won't play any of his sonatas on the piano. I cringe, and turn off whatever the source is, when I hear Scarlatti played on the piano. And yes, that goes for Horowitz too. If Horowitz loved Scarlatti, he should have played him on the harpsichord.

Scarlatti has given me pleasure for years... Not as much as J.S. Bach or Beethoven or Mozart, but one needs variety.

Love Scarlatti's work although much of it is similar.

What an absolute genius. The music radiates under the fingers of the Vladimir Horwitz.

My comment about Mr. Scarlatti is almost word for word what I recently said about Mr. Clamenti. While neither of them make my "top five" list, they both make my "top ten" list. In both cases, their music is delightful to listn to. Thanks again, Ed
