Catalogue Number: 09S020
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: The performer here discovered 23 of these sonatas in the Catalonian Library in Barcelona. They are in binary form and Scarlattian style, with many of the folkloristic patterns of Spanish music such as guitar‐like arpeggios, alternations of major and minor, exotic scales, dance rhythms, use of syncopations and crossed hands as well as the use of extravagant modulations and enharmonic passages. Michele Benuzzi (harpsichord).
