Sonata K 213 & A Mi Compadre Morao


Sonata K 213. Composed by Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757, Italy) and performed by Valeria Galimova.

Domenico Scarlatti was the son of the more well-known composer, Alessandro Scarlatti. Domenico was a prolific composer and harpsichordist who composed mainly for piano, harpsichord, and opera. His most famous collection of works is his 555 keyboard sonatas. Many of D. Scarlatti's works have been transcribed for multiple instruments.


 

A Mi Compadre Morao (soleá). Composed & performed by Antonio Rey.

The style of soleá — from the Spanish word soledad (loneliness) — dates back to the early part of the mid-1800s when flamenco was officially (i.e., in print) recognized as a genre in Spain. Like most flamenco styles, the soleá was heavily influenced by Spanish folk as well as classical music and dance (including a heavy influence from the Gipsies dating back to 1425). The soleá was originally a style for voice, guitar, and dance. Here Antonio Rey plays an instrumental composition of the style dedicated to the late guitarist, Manuel Moreno Junquera, "Moraito Chico."
