Domenico Scarlatti: Keyboard Sonatas

“I’ve always loved the music of Scarlatti for its total originality, the brilliance of the rhythms and his inventive genius, all combining to make his compositions a pleasure to perform. Out of the more than 500 sonatas he composed, I have chosen 12 of my favourite works to play on this CD. I think that they vividly demonstrate the breadth of Scarlatti’s ambitions and talents.” Virginia Black

Reviews"Black's bouyant rhythms convey what Ralph Kirkpatrick described as 'the wiry tension of Spanish dance', and, throughout, her passion for this music shines through." BBC Music Magazine
