A Baroque contemporary of Handel, Scarlatti composed more than 550 one-movement keyboard sonatas. This advanced marimba solo is an arrangement of one of the mellowest of those, Sonata in F Minor (L. 118/K. 466). In order to capture its ethereal ambiance, the soloist will be challenged to perform a delicate, connected legato and provide dynamic shaping free of accents. Adding to the challenge, grace notes feature prominently as does a more active harmonic rhythm. A well-crafted embodiment of the Baroque, Brian Slawson's arrangement doesn't impress with flash, it astounds with technical mastery and musicality.
