Some of you have asked me what do I do other than hair– my life beyond the blog. One of my favorite things is piano! I just did a recital this week, and here’s what I played.
It’s Domenico Scarlatti’s Sonata in F minor. Born the same year as J.S. Bach and G.F. Handel, Scarlatti was an exceptional baroque composer and one of the fathers of solo keyboard music. Each of his over five hundred one-movement sonatas is a unique gem. This beautiful piece is one of my favorites, and I performed it at a recital in March 2011. For this recording, I played it on my 1991 Baldwin Hamilton 243 named Schroeder. If you don’t know Schroeder’s story, you can read it here.
I just wanted to share that with ya’ll. Have a terrific Thursday!
