Merce Font Plays Sonata K.165 by Scarlatti

I’ve been meaning to feature guitarist Merce Font for awhile after seeing her cool vlog posts awhile back. Here she is playing Sonata K.165 / L.52 (original for harpsichord) by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757), arranged by Carlo Marchione. This comes via her great YouTube Channel. I really like it when she chooses an articulation in the bass voice or pops notes and motifs out in contrast with her beautifully flowing legato.

I couldn’t find any live harpsichord vids on YouTube which is strange but there are these recordings.

And this more peppy one by the great Scott Ross.
