CLASSICAL OPUS no.15

Domenico Scarlatti – “Sonata in D Minor k141”

ドメニコ・スカラッティ – 「ソナタのDマイナーk141」

 

TIME COMMITMENT: 3 minutes

This intense rococo carousel of swirling torrents leaves a trail of stubborn aftershocks.  And yet, we crave for more.  Luckily this is only one of this composer’s 555 keyboard sonatas.  Just imagine his lightning harpsichord speed competition with Haendel, the other eminent expatriate of that era.  But while Haendel peddled his fare to England, Scarlatti departed for Portugal.

A REFLECTION

The startling reality of things

Is my discovery every single day

Everything is what it is

And it’s hard to explain to anyone how much this delights me

And suffices me
