Ben's previous review brought this delightful collection of sonatas to my notice. None have Kirkpatrick numbering (or any, for that matter, by Longo, Prestelli or Czerny) save for track 12, sonata in D Major, a variation of Kk 96. This is as you would expect from material of doubtful authorship. But there is nothing doubtful about the style of the sonatas; each is a little "gem" in its own right. Each sonata is written in a quick tempo and all, save two, are in major keys so there is not much light and shade. But I suppose it's hard to pick and choose from a limited supply of material. The characteristic startling key changes of Scarlatti are certainly there. Each piece is executed well and energetically by Mayako Sone with crisp ornamentation. The production is excellent. For sheer excitement, you have to wait for the last track, Fandango in d minor. The CD is very modestly priced - it's worth every bit for this track alone.
Thanks, Ben.

Just a quick message to give some further information. The album cover announces these sonatas as "little-known harpsicord sonatas". The sleeve notes even claim that there is some doubt as to whether Scarlatti actually wrote many of these Sonatas. I had wanted to buy just a general introduction CD to some of his best known sonatas. So this wasn't quite what I was looking for. It's still a good CD though. I just thought I'd mention this so you have a clearer idea of what you would be getting.
