Domenico Scarlatti


Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti, also known as Domingo or Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757), was an Italian composer. He is classified primarily as a Baroque composer chronologically, although his music was influential in the development of the Classical style. Like his renowned father Alessandro Scarlatti, he composed in a variety of musical forms, although today he is known mainly for his 555 keyboard sonatas. Aside from his many sonatas, Scarlatti composed a number of operas, cantatas, and liturgical pieces. Well-known works include the Stabat Mater of 1715, and the Salve Regina of 1756, which is thought to be his last composition. He spent much of his life in the service of the Portuguese and Spanish royal families.
