Piotr Pakhomkin plays Sonata K. 177 by Scarlatti

Piotr Pakhomkin plays the Sonata in D Major K. 177 by Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1757). This comes via his YouTube Channel and the video by Drew Henderson. Guitar by luthier Ross Gutmeier – 2010 Cedar double-top. I’ve always loved this Sonata for it’s combination of heartfelt harmonies and magisterial/majestic mood. Well played by Pakhomkin here with some clean articulations, good phrasing, clear ornaments, and nice rhythmic drive.
