Ole Larson's Folks

No close family anniversaries. Born in Naples, Italy, on this date in 1685: composer Domenico Scarlatti. It was a good year for composers; also born in 1685 were Johann Sebastian Bach and George Frederick Handel. Scarlatti composed in many musical forms of the period, but is mostly remembered for his 555 keyboard sonatas. Some excellent examples are featured in the album below. Enjoy!
