Sergei Babayan, Piano Scarlatti: Sonatas

Pianist Sergei Babayan is one of the masters of the younger generation of classical pianists.  He is also "guru" of a stable of internationally recognized pianists... and is the dean of The Babayan School... for professional pianists.This is Mr. Babayan's initial release for Pro Piano Records.Scarlatti's keyboard was an orchestra, a canvas--where people danced, gypsies sang, and streets came alive with processions and fireworks.  During the first thirty-three years of his life in Italy, Domenico Scarlatti languished in the shadow of his father, Allesandro, one of the most famous opera composers of the day.,  Years under the influence of church music and Neapolitan opera had brought forth competent but undistinguished music  from the pen of the younger Scarlatti.  Then in 1719 Domenico packed his bags to take up an appointment with the royal court in Portugal.,  One of his main duties there  was the education of Princess Maria Barbara,  When she married in the royal family of Spain in 1729, the forty-four year old music master was bidden to follow his young patroness across the border into Seville, the current residence of the Spanish court.Princess Maria Barbara was bored, and asked Scarlatti for a constant supply of fresh and inventive Sonatas.the Princess was a brilliant performer and Scarlatti followed his huge creative imagination to appease her taste and his own.There are gestures of dance with wicked runs, orgies of sound, vivid colors, and flashy meditative tinges mingled throughout.Herewith are 19 Scarlatti Sonatas from Sergei Babayan.Sergei Babayan, PianoScarlatti: SonatasDomenico Scarlatti(1685-1757): 19 SonatasK.8 in G Minor (Allegro)K.454 in G Major (Andante spiritoso)K.54 in A Minor (Allegro)K.547 in G Major (Allegro)K.247 in C-sharp Minor (Allegro)K.118 in D Major (Non Presto)K.198 in E Minor (Allegro)K.79 in G Major (Allegrissimo)K.239 in F Minor (Allegro)K.45 in D Major (Allegro)K.491 in D Major (Allegro)K.17 in F Major (Presto)K.365 in F Minor (Allegro)K.445 in F Major (Allegro, ò presto)K.502 in C Major (Allegro)K.141 in D Minor (Toccata, Allegro)K.487 in C Major (Allegro)K.425 in G Major (Allegro molto)K.427 in G Major (Prestissimo) Scarlatti: Sonata K.141 in D MinorDomenico Scarlatti(1685-1757): 19 SonatasK.8 in G Minor (Allegro)K.454 in G Major (Andante spiritoso)K.54 in A Minor (Allegro)K.547 in G Major (Allegro)K.247 in C-sharp Minor (Allegro)K.118 in D Major (Non Presto)K.198 in E Minor (Allegro)K.79 in G Major (Allegrissimo)K.239 in F Minor (Allegro)K.45 in D Major (Allegro)K.491 in D Major (Allegro)K.17 in F Major (Presto)K.365 in F Minor (Allegro)K.445 in F Major (Allegro, ò presto)K.502 in C Major (Allegro)K.141 in D Minor (Toccata, Allegro)K.487 in C Major (Allegro)K.425 in G Major (Allegro molto)K.427 in G Major (Prestissimo) Scarlatti: Sonata K.141 in D MinorTotal Playing Time 69' 59"
