How Can Modern Technology Contribute to a Great Piano Performance?

Why haven’t there been any fundamental changes of grand piano design since the 1870s? Some claim it is because manufacturers are afraid of getting beaten up in the marketplace if their pianos are seen as being “experimental”. Others say that musicians tend to be a conservative group of people and do not embrace radical changes to the touch or tone of their instruments. 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.
