Q: Where can I get the sheet music for this piece?
A: Sheet music for this can be found here:
http://www.musanim.com/pdf/ScarlattiK...
This is from the Longo edition, I think; I recommend the Fadini "critical" edition (published by Ricordi; expensive, but worth it).

Q: Please tell me more about the composer.
A: You can read about the composer here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Domenico...

Q: What instrument are you playing?
A: I'm playing a sampled instrument, Gerard Atema's "Pristine Harpsichord," recorded by Frank van der Weij, and sold to me by GigaStudio.

Q: What would this sound like on the piano?
A: Here is Vladimir Horowitz's wonderful rendition:

Q: What does K stand for?
A: Ralph Kirkpatrick, who did a numbering of the sonatas; more about him here
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ralph_Ki...

Q: How and when did you make this rendition?
A: I made this rendition in the early days of MIDI (1980s, I think), by laying down left hand and right hand tracks individually, not in real time.

Q: Is there a way I could make the bar-graph scores myself?
A: The Music Animation Machine MIDI file player will generate this display; you can get the (Windows) software here:
http://www.musanim.com/player/
There are lots of places on the web where you can get MIDI files; I usually go to the Classical Archives site first:

A: First, check my "to do" list:

http://www.musanim.com/mam/mamfaq.htm... ...
and if you think I'd consider doing it, email me (stephen at musanim dot com).

Q: The audio/video isn't very good; can I get the original?
