That will become his fifth.

I've only just realised why you said this. Does the unnumbered one antedate vol. 1?

Thanks Jens for the link and your reviews - I own a number of those CDs, including the Scarlatti - but just put the Jean Roger-Ducasse 3-CD set in my Amazon cart - new composer to me - also found some other excellent 'thumbs-up' reviews - Dave :)

I have only just now seen this post.

The answer is yes, the Naive CD was his first Scarlatti recording.

Thanks for reading and the kind words! I hope you'll like that Roger-Ducasse as much (or even just almost as much) as I do.

Meanwhile, apropos to this thread:

Mario Martinoli has chosen sonatas to illustrate Scarlatti's writing in different keys. And of course keys suggest affects. This, combined with Martnolli's reflective tempos, results in performances which are particularly interesting expressively. He says that Leonhardt was a major influence, and I can imagine that anyone who appreciates Leonhardt's DHM Scarlatti will enjoy this, I think it's worth hearing.

I don't think that the title is supposed to suggest anything interesting's going on about the way the instrument has been tuned, unfortunately.

In a well-tempered world ? ?

(I must admit to a personal predilection for D minor, but there's really no logic to that.)
