played by Mrs. NORMAN O'NEILL.
SCARLATTI (1683-1757) (Part I). Scarlatti brought a new technique to Harpsichord music, doing away with exaggerated use of ornamentation then in vogue, and made the hands move about the keyboard with greater freedom. He frequently made the hands cross, so that the arm and forearm had to be used freely, thus laying the foundation of modern piano technique.
Allegro in C Major.
Tempo di Ballo in D Major. Pastorale in D Minor. Allegro in D Minor. Vivace in C Major.
Note : Scarlatti wrote some 600 pieces, wrongly called "Sonatas." They are really numbers occurring in many "Suites."
