About This Work

Composer:  Domenico Scarlatti 

Arranger:  Yuri Liberzon

Description: In arranging violin sonatas for guitar my goal was to produce a guitar version which would achieve balance between comfort of playing and preservation of the original musical content. In this arrangement I gave particular attention to fingerings of both hands as well as other suggestive markings to make it ideaomatic for the instrument. Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti was an Italian composer who spent much of his life in the service of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families. Scarlatti is known mainly for his 555 keyboard sonatas. Ralph Kirkpatrick, the great Scarlatti scholar and renowned harpsichordist saw him as Ôinfluenced not only by Spanish music but also by the guitar. Though Scarlatti probably never played or wrote for the guitarÉ surely no composer ever fell more deeply under its spellÕ. Many of Scarlatti's figurations and dissonances are suggestive of the guitar. It is therefore appropriate that the playing of ScarlattiÕs sonatas is increasingly popular on one or two guitars. During recent years guitar arrangements of over 200 sonatas have been published.
