The keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti and eighteenth-century musical style0521481406, 9780521481403, 9780511065514

Author : W. Dean Sutcliffe
Description:This investigation of one of the greatest yet least understood repertories of Western keyboard music reveals the reasons why the 555 keyboard sonatas of Domenico Scarlatti have not been written about more often. The lack of documentary evidence and the composer's position between the so-called Baroque and the Classical periods are crucial factors. W. Dean Sutcliffe also examines each individual sonata in unprecedented detail.
