About this release

A selection from the 600 sontas by Domenico Scarlatti (1685 - 1757) that illustrate two facets of his musical personality. The first part depicts the genius of the composer – some of his greatest and most remarkable sonatas have been selected by Carbonara. These works illustrate the exploratory and innovative nature of the sonatas. The second part gathers together a selection of sonatas that illustrate the gambler, or the reckless side of the composer. These sonatas are just as innovative as those on the first part, but there is a devil may care craziness to some of the music.

Other information:
- Recordings made in 2009.
- 42 Scarlatti sonatas containing some unknown and rarely recorded works.
- Extensive booklet essay on each sonata, written by the artist.
