Very fine playing, Owl. In fact your ornaments are in good taste. I would have preffered cross-string ornaments, but otherwise, nice job.

Very beatiful work Owl! I'm a big fan of Scarlatti and must say this interpretation is just delightful: great balance, tone, and most importantly personality.

Owl nailed this piece with the joyful, lifting spirit D.S. might have envisioned. I only say this because today I was reading an account describing "Mimo" (the composer's aledged nickname.) In the preface to one of his compositions, Scarlatti wrote that one should not attempt to find anything profound in his music. Whether evaluated by an expert (I think he said "professor") or not, his music was to be in jest. He went on to say his music was better played with feelings...

I have paraphrased the above, but I think it conveys what the preface intended. He wrote short, jestful pieces, apparently. Anyway, I'm sure others know much more about D. Scarlatti than I but I found this snippet of information about him interesting and appropriate for the wonderful play of our Owl.

Hello Charles... thank you for this info... it is exactly how this music makes me feel... so I was happy to read this!
It is a joy to play Scarlatti... his music always gives me a lift!

In a different vein Antonio Lauro make me feel the same way... I love to play his waltzes... such a lilting joy to play.

Thanks again for your comments Charles... I know you love Scarlatti and it is an absolute pleasure for me to play him for you.
