Scarlatti Keyboard Sonata in D minor, K. 64

Domenico Scarlatti wrote this Sonata in D minor, usually catalogued as either K. 64, L. 58, or P. 33 around 1740, and it first appeared on print in 1742, in his second published volume of keyboard sonatas. It has been said that this sonata evokes a characteristic guitar like feeling (as many works by Scarlatti do). The opening of the sonata shows definite Spanish influence in the use of rhytms. It has been arranged for Michel Rondeau for strings and it has been the subject of many guitar adaptations, the most famous of all by Narciso Yepes. The work takes usually under to minutes to be performed.
