Scarlatti, Sonate per cembalo, Venice MSS, cover

Scarlatti's phenomenal œuvre of nearly 600 keyboard sonatas are all product of  his Spanish years. He first arrived in Sevilla in 1729 (likely absorbing the elements of flamenco); in 1733 he traveled to Madrid  to become music master to Princess Maria Barbara, and after she became Queen of Spain, Scarlatti continued his association with the court. The Biblioteca Nazionale Marciana in Venice preserves the world's richest collection of the sonatas of Scarlatti—acquired in 1835—from which this facsimile edition is based. The originals, all bound in red morocco with engraved arms of Spain and Portugal are extremely authoritative, and though not in the hand of Scarlatti himself, they are clearly and carefully executed by a single scribe, possibly his student Antonio Soler.
