Best known for his keyboard sonatas, the music of Soler shows the influence of Scarlatti without imitating it, including the sounds of Spanish dances and Italian influences. This sonata is a radiantly joyful, merry and mischievous, lively and light musical celebration. It is in 3/8 time, with running 16th notes, ornamentation, and nice dynamic contrasts.
