This overbursting sonata has a lot of Spanish blood inside itself. Played on the organ it gets just the right spirit. Why are there not more organists who play this fine sonatas of Scarlatti on their instrument? Gerard van Reenen is organist, forte-pianist, pianist and clavichordplayer as well, so he has a wide choise. But the organ is definitely not his last choise. The tempo indication of this sonate is: prestissimo, this means simply: very fast, and not as fast as possible. For this indication Scarlatti gave the italian words: presto, quanto sia possibile. Most players (harpsichordists and pianists) play this sonate indeed as fast as possible. Video recording and montage: Wim Bender, sound and mix: Arnold Vos-vanDijk. Info: www.gerardvanreenen.nl
