Οι σονάτες του Domenico Scarlatti, αδημοσίευτες οι περισσότερες στη διάρκεια της ζωής του, αποτελούν διαμάντια της πιανιστικής φιλολογίας.
Ανάμεσα στους επιφανείς θαυμαστές του ανά τους αιώνες περιλαμβάνονται μουσικοί όπως οι Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Brahms, Chopin, Bartok.
Κάτι που δεν λέγεται συχνά είναι ότι το αίσθημα που διαπνέει τα έργα ξεφεύγει από το πλαίσιο του μπαρόκ, προαναγγέλοντας συχνά εκείνο της ρομαντικής περιόδου.
Ακούμε τρεις σονάτες του DS από το μεγάλο πιανίστα και μαέστρο Mikhail Pletnev.

Domenico Scarlatti’s sonatas, most of them unpublished in his lifetime, are diamonds of pianistic literature.
Among his prominent admirers over the centuries are composers such as Bach, Mozart, Beethoven, Liszt, Brahms, Chopin, Bartok.
Something that is not often said is that the feeling of these works goes often beyond the context of baroque, anticipating that of the romantic period.
We hear three of DS’ sonatas, performed by the great pianist and conductor Mikhail Pletnev.


00:00 Sonata for keyboard in F minor, K. 386 (L. 171)
Sonata for keyboard in F minor, K. 387 (L. 175)
Sonata for keyboard in B minor, K. 27 (L. 449)


As always, I’m happy to hear your thoughts, however I’d highly recommend a direct dialogue with the …’source’ [why comments are closed here], so please visit Oannes’ page where you can also listen to the song !
