Know more about the K.209


Have you ever heard my transcription of the Sonata K.209 by Domenico Scarlatti? Well, if you didn’t, then you should definitely check the great recording of Flavio Nati! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jQgKNRBXX7w

Many Scarlatti’s Sonatas are meant to be played in couple (or even in group of three). The K.209 is the twin-sonata of the K.208 (transcribed by me and published by Chanterelle some years ago). In this Sonata K.209, I held the same tonality and tuning of the K.208 in order to enable these sonatas to be played in succession without any break. The tonality of D major fits better with the sparkling and crispy character of this movement. The score is fully fingered so I hope you’ll enjoy it!!!
