Scarlatti, Domenico - Sonata in A K.322 + Tutorial

Post by Martin Bickerton » Sun Oct 28, 2018 6:56 pm



I've tried to keep the interpretation as exam friendly as possible, i.e. no repeats, moderate tempo, clear interpretation.

Hope you all like it!

Thank you for this, Martin. It is one of the pieces I have chosen for my grade 8. I would have liked a bit about the ornamentation in the piece but it is still very useful.

Hi Buster, Cheers! I'm currently using D'addario Dynacore high tension on my Hill. I changed the strings only about 45 mins before hitting record!

Hi DerekB, you are welcome :) It's a lovely piece right?! nice choice. Good luck for your grade 8... what other pieces have you chosen?
Thanks for the feedback, I would love to do an extra lesson on ornamentation at some point (on the series I call- 're string).

The other pieces I am working on are Villa Lobos Mazurka-Choro and Brouwer Guajira criolla and Zapateado (they count as one piece). It is a long time since I took grade 7 but a broken wrist and some long holidays have not helped my progress.

Very nice choices, a good varied programme. Sorry to hear about your broken wrist, how did you get back on track? I'm asking for a student of mine in Cheadle who has suffered a similar injury.

My scaphoid fracture took a couple of months to be correctly diagnosed by which time an operation to insert a screw was necessary. I can think of better ways to spend New Year's Eve. Then my arm was in plaster for two months followed by a few weeks in a splint. By then my hand had become very stiff and weak so it took a couple of months more to get it working again. All of this made me more aware that there is mild arthritis in my hand. Before the first therapy session I was advised to take a painkiller - I was glad I did. After not playing for seven months it takes a little while to get back to grade 8 standard.

Hi Martin; Thank you for this video. I learned this one a couple of years ago when I was on a Scarlatti kick. (I still kind of am.) It's the toughest technically of the half dozen or so that I worked on seriously. My teacher and I took it apart phrase by phrase. I'll pull it out again this evening and listen to your tutorial once more.

Cheers!
