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.
