Domenico Scarlatti is a mystery. Apart from his sonatas, almost nothing remains of his other compositions and we know little about his life. This makes what we actually know about him all the more intriguing. Celebrated pianist Daria van den Bercken focused her attention on some of the more than 560 sonatas that Scarlatti left behind. Her interpretations of these miniatures are as individualised as the pieces are different and unique. Some of the sonatas fit together hand in glove while others display huge contrasts. The result is a mosaic of gems that she plays in short groups and explains in between.
