A most annoying thing for me is that no matter how long I have learned or played my Scarlatti sonatas, I can never remember any of the K numbers correctly...I always have to dig out the scores just to know which piece it is that I am working with

Well, probably not a K2 but if it's the predecessor. Depending on where you are, but in California where pianos sell for pretty good prices a new K2 sells for about $4000~$4500 I think. If it were 10 years old, maybe $2500, if it were 20 years old

That's true; and knowing Yamaha, they will exaggerate the improvements. I'm still waiting for the holy grail of digital pianos, yet Yamaha, Kawai, and Roland claim to have achieved this at every winter NAMM.

Hi Nick, That's a nice piece. The theme is an ear worm (hard to get out of one's head). The piece sounds like background music for a European movie when the protagonist goes off to "think." There's not a lot of variation in your piece. T
