The Sweet and Not So Sweet Sound of Music

Our modern ears are now used to equal temperament, and, despite the impurities in its intervals, now prefer its sound over any other temperament. Researchers at the University of Minnesota wanted to delve more into this and studied 250 students at the University. Their main thesis question was: what makes certain combinations of notes pleasant or unpleasant? Read more >>

I only found information that the manuscript is privately owned. I wonder if  the sheet music has even been published. Also it seems the work is only believed, not proven, to been composed by Scarlatti. So no help here, sorry.

There is no such piece.  The piece you are listening to is thought to have been written by a student of Soler.  I'm familiar with the piece, but not with where to obtain the sheet music.  Have you considered Soler's own Fandango (which is also assumed to have been written by a student of Soler, but it is common to attribute it to Soler)?  It's similar:

Sheet music is widely available for this piece.  However, like many of Soler's (and Scarlatti's) works, it's extremely difficult.  A somewhat easier work that you might be interested in, in so much as that it has similar character, is Rameau's Le Rappel des Oiseaux (although without the Spanish flavor):

In general, I would recommend looking through the shorter works by Rameau, Couperin and Soler if you are interested in this type of music.  Scarlatti is, in my opinion, the creme de la creme, but there are plenty of brilliant works by slightly lesser-performed (but still well-known) composers.

The New Concept: Scores for All Stages of Learning

On the recent Music Education Expo in London, Piano Street presented a new concept for sheet music publication. Depending on your own level of experience and where you are in the learning process of a particular piece, you may need fingering, pedal markings, practice and performance tips, or perhaps the right opposite - a clean Urtext score.
