An exact contemporary of Bach and Handel, Domenico Scarlatti was already a celebrated composer in Italy by the time he moved to Portugal. Later he traveled to Spain, where he worked as a harpsichord instructor for Princess Maria Barbara. The lessons he wrote for her are among the most imaginative and unpredictable pieces from the whole baroque period. His music translates very well to the guitar, an instrument where his style is completely at home. This set of 30 sonatas transcribed by acclaimed guitarist Fabio Zanon includes new transcriptions of all-time favorites and some rarer ones as well.
