When I set out to create a course for this piece for members of the Classical Guitar Corner Academy, I found myself a bit lost on what to discuss. This is a grade 8 piece and a player at that level should be able to perform the piece with good tone, rhythm, and voicing.
As I dug deeper I began to identify what it was that really made this work stand out from many others in the repertoire. What I discovered were some musical gifts from Scarlatti but also some opportunities for the performer to turn something beautiful into the sublime.
Here is a performance video that I made back in 2012
It is such a beautiful piece, I hope to play it for as long as I live!
