The musical scores of Domenico Scarlatti

Domenico Scarlatti’s musical scores

Contribution from Silvia Bracher for the restoration of the musical scores of Domenico Scarlatti, harpsichordist and composer of the Baroque age, preserved in the Biblioteca Marciana. The series of 15 manuscripts handing down 496 harpsichord sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti was purchased by Marciana in 1835, from the noble Contarini family of San Beneto.
During the recent lockdown period, Marciana published on its Facebook page a fragment of Scarlatti’s K53 sonata from It. IV, 212 (=9783): Domenico Scarlatti’s K53 sonata
