  • September 26, 2020 Urtext by a great Scarlatti scholar and performer

    This edition from 1953 is the first to present a selection of Scarlatti in chronological order (or the best that can be surmised, since the sources are not dated by date of composition). The preface is quite detailed and well worth reading. The critical notes are at the end of...

    Volume II. The arrangement of the notes on the staves is by Kirkpatrick, rather than the original layout of the source materials as in the Fadini edition. This helps the performer to decide how to distribute the notes to each hand when they are close together. There are no other added performance hints such as fingering. Page turns are great. This selection contains few of the most popular pieces but exhibits a range of Scarlatti at his best. For large collections with fingering, check out the Editio Musica Budapest or Henle editions. For complete editions, we have Kenneth Gibert's Le Pupitre (Heugel) and Fadini (Ricord) - these have no fingerings and few editorial marks.

    Difficulty Level:
  • January 13, 2009 True reference for the harpsichordist!

    Wonderful edition! The printing is clear and pleasant, the contrast ink-paper color not aggressive, the layout quite "aerated", so the eyes don't get tired, even after hours of practice. Plus, the cover seems sturdy, it will probably last for ages! But most of all Kirkpatrick's work is...

    worth every cent, with a very "user-manual like" and complete preface, very useful for new harpsichordists. If you want only one edition of the Scarlatti Sonatas, you definitely need this one! One more general comment: these "little" sonatas seem "easier" than the big piano pieces from the classical and romantic repertory, but if you want to be true to the style, (like in Mozart's ones), you'll feel naked! Nowhere to hide! But these jewels deserve a place in every harpsichordist and pianist's library. Happy reading!
