So, this guy wrote a couple sonatas, and probably a couple too many. I keep mixing them up! So, I've been listening to some of the old french pianists playing baroque, people like Marcelle Meyer and Madeleine de Valmalete. Here is the latter, playing a sonata I'd love to learn, but it seems that it is numbered incorrectly in the video. Does anyone have a clue which number it might actually be? Im not planning to go through the entire sonatas by Scarlatti just to find out....



What is the best solution whenever one runs into this kind of problem? Haven't been able to find a thematic index online, so far...

Maybe you were confusing the Kirkpatrick with Longo numbers?

Sonata in A, Kk39 or L391.

You don't have to go through all of them. Just confirm the key, which shrinks the catalogue greatly.

Unless...it is played for some reason in a different key. One time I found a youtube video of an unspecified Scarlatti sonata, and it was in E I think. Later, I happened upon the same sonata, but it was originally in D. I wish I could remember which one it was.

Period instruments may use a lower pitch - harpsichords for example, as well as fortepianos. Almost a semitone lower than A=440.

Thanks for identifying the sonata, guys! I somehow always end up with these problems with the Scarlatti sonatas. And there are quite a few sonatas in A major, so I dont know how much it really helps to know the key...

It was the first one of eleven in A major. Since he wrote about a million sonatas, I'd say in this case, it helped immensely. laugh

I actually wrote a little Excel spreadsheet that quickly converts between K and L numbers, if anyone is interested.

I've often wondered how small Kirkpatrick numbers can have such high Longo numbers.... grin

And whatever happened to Pestelli numbers?

The Longo numbers, from the complete Ricordi edition edited (rather poorly) by Longo, are pretty much arbitrary. The Kirkpatrick numbers are compiled pretty much according to the one edition of thirty sonatas published in Scarlatti's lifetime, followed by the rest in the order they appear in the various collections of manuscripts, using Kirkpatrick's assumptions about the order in which the collections were compiled.

Well, I remember! grin

Of course I can't be sure if this is what you mean, but I'd bet half a string of poloponies that it is, because it's a famous example.

I'm guessing that it's an arrangement by Tausig of the D minor, L. 413, which he transposed to E minor to go with his arrangement of the E major, L. 375. He called the set "Pastorale and Capriccio" and the pair used to be a pretty favorite thing long ago, till about the mid-20th century when it mostly died out. Here's a recording by Brailowsky from about 1000 years ago:

I did that too, one day a few years ago, and I was going to post it... but it turns out Wikipedia beats us all to is. Here's the correlation between K, L and P (?) numbers.

I promise I won't bring this up again, but I can't stand it when someone starts a sentence with the word "so". It is a conjunction and is used to join two phrases. I'll be quiet now. (Bruce, where are you?)

Well, it seems to be sort of the new version of the colloquial "Well, ......."

I don't like it either. To me, it sounds stupid. But there's probably a lot that we'd think we don't like about the world of 200 years from now -- and those people will look back on how we lived and talked and wrote, and they'll be like, "How quaint." smile

Cliff's Notes: I think we have to get used to it.

BTW, "Well, ......" doesn't sound too smart to me either. grin

So, "and they'll be like" is even worse than "So, ...." shocked

Well, and I thought that using 'so' to start a sentence is a typically American thing. Like getting your dates in the wrong order (MM/DD/YYYY instead of DD/MM/YYYY as it's done in every other country), mis-spelling words wink by removing letters ('favorite' instead of 'favourite' etc). And, oddest of all, "pulling the trigger" on something - which I thought meant you shot it to bits because you detested it, but no, it meant you actually bought it crazy.

So, now that I've got clarification, can we get back to using 'practising' as a verb, not 'practicing', which is an adjective?
(As a practicing musician, I love practising on the piano) grin .

It isn't only a conjunction; it's one of those multipurpose words that functions in many ways.

Correct me, if I'm wrong, but I believe "so" can be used not only as a conjunction, but an adverb, adjective, or interjection.

The 'typically American' thing is not caring what is done in every other country. smile

As long as we're not talking about Scarlatti anymore smile , here's a thoughtful article on the emergence of sentences that start with "so":

I hate the way America does dates. When I was a kid, I always wrote it the other way, which makes so much more sense. Then just when I finally got used to doing it the month/day/year way, I went to England and got used to doing it the right way, and now I'm just all confused.

(However, I do like how America spells "favorite." It has less superfluous letters smile )

Funny, I thought the use of 'so' to start a spoken sentence had always been common in New York, where I grew up. So sue me. smile

Fewer. (Unless you mean the letters in "favorite" are superfluous to a smaller degree.)
We have Noah Webster to thank (or blame) for the spelling change.

Thanks, I never heard of that distinction before. So would this be correct?: "Dr. Terwilliger has left his practice, having practised otorhinolaryngology for twenty years."

I guess you would prefer to say "24, Scarlatti, K" rather than "K24, Scarlatti" or "Scarlatti, 24K"? smile
