Keyboard Sonata in D minor, K. 141 (L. 422)
In all, Avison orchestrated twelve Scarlatti sonatas, which are embodied in the Twelve Concertos This work is, in essence, a minuet, which Kirkpatrick finds "betrays Scarlatti's Neapolitan origins in the sudden changes of major thirds to minor". The sonata is full of trills, mandolin-like strummings and piquant dissonances. Under this dizzying whirl of twirling feet, stamping heels and shrill village instruments, the inevitable castanets are felt if not actually heard in the built-up crescendos of rhythmic acceleration which culminate in a clattering whirr at the trills.
This work seems like a chain of harmonic progressions dissolved in a consistent figuration.
In this sonata we hear a battery of trumpets or horns within a framework of Spanish dance music. It is also one of the most brilliant of the early sonatas, combining horn-calls, repeated figurations and hand-crossing.

This intimate, refined, soul-searching music illustrates that Scarlatti was also exceptionally gifted at writing music of depth, in this case a delicious and dolorous lament.
Kirkpatrick marvels that in this sonata one hears "a dominant pedal held high in the air while the lower part rises to meet it. The dynamic contrasts only add to the stately and relaxed atmosphere of powdered wigs, swishing skirts and couples bowing to each other as they take their leisurely dance-steps.
Its mood is sombre and at moments mournful, ending with an air of finality. Hands are required to cross and re-cross in the two-note figure echoed through three octaves. She teases and looks away, covering her face behind a fan, but his ardour is not to be ignored.
The couple then chase after each other through the gardens, depicted in the running figurations. It is a "commotion-filled" piece, almost giving us a glimpse at a busy market full of haggling shoppers.
Vincenzo Tommasini orchestrated part of this sonata for his ballet Le donne di buon umore The Good-Humoured Ladies , where it has the title "Conspiracy of the women to mock Silvestra". Arthur Benjamin freely adapted this sonata as the fourth movement of his composition, Suite for Flute and Strings.
Kirkpatrick hears in this work Scarlatti's keyboard imitation of orchestral tutti. About this Recording 8. Marina and Victor Ledin. Close the window.
