Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757) is one of the most original italian composers of the first half of the eighteenth century. Born in Naples the same year as two other icons, Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frideric Handel, Scarlatti's enormous output includes 555 surviving keyboard sonatas, and can be considered an encyclopedia of literature of all time for its vastness, invention, and variety of writing. Only a fraction of Scarlatti's compositions were published during his lifetime: in 1738, Scarlatti oversaw the publication of 30 of his works, which he titled “Essercizi” (Exercises).
Scarlatti's keyboard sonatas are single movements, mostly in binary form, and some in early sonata form, and mostly written for the harpsichord or the earliest pianofortes (only four for organ). Some of them display great audacity in the way dissonances and unconventional modulations to remote keys are used.

"Listening to Giuseppe Greco in live performances, I found his sound to be warm and full. His technical brilliance is not superficial, but always serving the musical's expression and meaning." -Bruno Canino
