xx Scarlatti Sonata Kp. 535

Yes, it's the one everybody played for their ABRSM G8.
In D major.
I apologise for the muffled sound - I was trying to get rid of background sound by putting it under a quilt, but it sounds a bit horrible.
I played it two years ago for my G8, but just thought I'd have a play of it. So I might polish it so that I can play it with a contrasting D minor slow sonata for my dipLCM.
If you know of any nice slow Scarlatti D minor sonatas, please let me know.

Did anybody listen to this sonata? I play it and i want to know your opinion about this piece of music concerning its musicality, not its difficulty.

Is it a good example of baroque keyboard music or it is just a series of descending arpeggios ? I don't know but sometimes i get the feeling it is just a technical exercise for the RH fast descending arpeggios.

I know it is not as fascinating as K.27 or K.46 or K.466 but I want to know if this piece can be performed someday or I better keep it for warming up.

xx Scarlatti sonata fingering
May 22, 2006, 11:03:15 AM by kghayesh

I had a problem in the fingering of some passage in Scarlatti's K.535 D major sonata (that of grade 8 ABRSM syllabus). Find it in the image below. This RH D major descending arpeggio.

This part is intended to be played fast (Allegro). I don't know which fingering to choose, i am confused between either 4 2 1 2 or 3 2 1 2 or 2 1 3 2, but i definitely won't choose the one indicated in the score that starts with 5. I think it is hard to play the notes right (F# D A F#) like this with the pinky and the thumb playing on black keys. It will be lazy and with little action which is needed in Scaralatti sonatas.

What do you think ??

xx Scarlatti K535 Fingering?

Ok, the descending arpeggios in this piece, how would you play these? The music I have spreads them across two hands, but this seems flawed in that you have to cut the bass notes short.

Iv been playing them with this fingering so far:

Bar 5 - RH 421 421 421   LH 125

Bar 6 - RH 532 532 532   LH 152 or RH 421 421 421 LH 152

Any pointers on playing these, as Im finding this is really holding back my progress with this piece.

Dr. Robert J Keane, pianist

"I was in Poland the past summer to give 2 concerts. At the last minute they requested some Chopin, which I had not brought with me. So, I google-searched for classical downloads and found your site. I was able to print out excellent editions of the pieces I needed within minutes. To find the scores locally would have been inpossible as it was a smaller town, the nearest music store 45 minutes away."

"Piano Street has been a wonderful tool to me as both a pianist and a piano teacher. I can browse the collection for pieces I want to play and/or have my students play. The difficulty rating system that Piano Street uses enables me to search by difficulty level for pieces at my students' various playing levels. It is helpful that many of the scores include an audio clip of the piece being played. I have recommended to my advanced students that they also join Piano Street since getting sheet music from there is a much less expensive alternative to ordering and paying for the music.
