Scarlatti Sonata in A Minor

Scarlatti Sonata in A Minor

This is another sonata I recorded with Gustavo Romero for his CD "17 Keyboard Sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti."

I had intended this to be an "enhanced CD." This was back in the mid-1990s, which was the CD ROM era, and an enhanced CD was a combo audio CD and presentation CD. If you put it in your computer it would do a interactive biography of Scarlatti.  

Unfortunately, record stores (there were record stores back then) refused to carry enhanced CDs because so many of them were buggy and customers would return them, disappointed. It cost me over 10K to put the interactive part together all for naught.  Oh well.

In doing research for it, I even discovered Domenico Scarlatti has several living descendants in Spain and I contacted them -- they sent me a never-before published biography of Domenico written by his grandson as well as 100 years of family photographs!

I still have that stuff and should get around to publishing it someday.
