Dominika Dawidowska Plays Scarlatti K.11

Polish guitarist Dominika Dawidowska plays Sonata K.11, L.352 by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757), originally written for keyboard. This comes via Matthew McAllister’s YouTube but you can also follow Dawidowska’s Youtube. Dominika Dawidowska studies with Matthew McAllister at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland. Super clean and crisp! She had me at that first cross-string trill but she also has some excellent gradual dynamic shaping of phrases and sharp accents. An overall tight, compact aesthetic for the piece is really working here. Looking forward to seeing more videos from her.

  1. Dawidowska is indeed a marvelous player! Thanks for the introduction. Speaking of cross string trills, are you familiar with Smaro Gregoriadou?
