Musical Snacks
Oct 7 @ 12:00 pm – 1:00 pm

Musical Snack #1: Sonata in E, K. 162 by Domenico Scarlatti

Sonata in E, K. 162, by Domenico Scarlatti, performed by Bruce
Murray at the Oxford Community Arts Center, Oxford, OH, during
pandemic summer 2020.

Wednesdays at noon wherever you are, take a break, a deep breath and enjoy a few minutes of exquisite music recorded in the beautiful ballroom of Oxford Community Arts Center.

Bruce Murray writes: "Domenico Scarlatti (1685-1759) started
writing "sonatas" at age 53 and produced nearly 600 of them over
twenty years. This piece is relatively well known because
Vladimir Horowitz made a remarkable recorded. It is a bit
unusual for Scarlatti in that it alternates slow and fast
sections; most sonatas have the same tempo and same basic
material throughout."

The music is in the public domain.
