Thank you, Owl! That was wonderful! :D
I love your tone (as I always do) and you play it with great feeling. However, I would have played it a little faster if I were you - I think that will emphasize the joy and glee in the melody's first part... But this was just great! :D

By the way... Isn't it Sonata L485 and not 483? :)

Outstanding, fantastic, incredible, awesome, unbelievable. brilliant, perfection, excellent, tremendous, phenomenal, amazing, remarkable, extraordinarily beautiful playing.
Only in my dreams would I ever be able to play that beautifully.
Thank you!
Music touches the heart, but playing classical guitar can lift your heart and enrich your life.

Wonderful interpretation. This is a perfect tempo for my ear; it's not always necessary or even desirable to play a guitar interpretation at the same tempo as is commonly played on the original intrument. I like the ornamentation you've added throughout.

Sounded really great, Owl. I have had my eye on this piece for a long time. After hearing that I am motivated to learn it!

Hey, have you ever heard K. 377? It's another really good one. If you want to hear a great recording of it, do a search for Isaac Bustos and you can hear it on his site. It's fantastic!

:shock: OH MY :shock: Charles, I wish I had read your warning... I didnt hold on and my socks were just blown away into the wind... but I was left with the most marvelous addition to my Owl folder. But then, she has cost me socks before - I'll have to go out and buy more after this one - Calling all Owlies, Calling all Owlies.... dinner is served !!
:merci: Im so indebted to Charles for persuading you to post this one - :ivresse: Here's to you my dear, Mike

Lady Owl - may your heart forever sing as sweetly and may that voice continue to stir the strings in mine...

I'm not a fan of Scarlatti's music. Of your playing I most certainly am.
I only clicked on listen because it said Owl. Enough said.

:bravo: Excellent performance. Very clean playing,and great tone.
Trebles are a bit thin at times, but that's severe nitpicking.
I bet its more the recording technique than the guitar.

Loved this one. Makes me want to play it..

I'd love to hear you play K213 as well. You really have a great sound. :casque:

L483 is definitely right - (under composers works & data) has lists to check Kirkpatrick and Longo numbers against each other. John Williams' 1988 CD wrongly labels it L485 :oops: - maybe that's where some mis-understanding comes from. I've just listened to that JW recording again and it's too fast - Owl, your tempo clarifies the whole piece far more beautifully. Thanks again.

Owl, I just hear this beauty now. I must say it is my D.Scarlatti favourite. You are playing jut great and with great feeling. You made my evening!
:applauso: :applauso: :applauso:
Thank you!

P.S. And as you always like to say, Joy in the music!
