I think Scarlatti is my choice....

Postby juufa72 on Sat Jul 22, 2006 1:17 am

So here is the lowdown:

If I do not go to the United Arab Emirates this winter (hopefully the Jews and Arabs do not blow up each other to hell and back) then I will enter in my former piano teacher's recital. It's a casual event, not graded or judged. And the average skill level is not that high, lots of young kids just beginning so they will play all the simplified Alfred's Chirstmas songs. There are a few people who are older (15-ish) who play Mozart sonatas or compose their own works (which I may add are pretty damn good). Then there is me, 20, the lone ranger of adults :roll:. :oops::cry:>

The point:

I want to focus on Scarlatti, he deserves some respect. I have played Chopin for two recitals in a row (but many years apart, Prelude No.7 when I just began, and then Mazurka op.33 no.3..i think thats the one). And now I want to change it up a bit.

I like Sonata K.27/L.449 and K.61/L.136.

Do you like either one of those?

If so, which one?

Thanks
