Two and a half minutes of Scarlatti

Monday morning offering from Gallica. A fragment of the Fugue in F minor of the Baroque composer Alessandro Scarlatti [1660-1725] is played on the harpsichord by the Belgian performer Aimée Van de Wiele [1907-1991].

To listen to the old gramophone recording, click the image of Scarlatti, then click the arrow at the top of the page.


  1. When I clicked Scarlatti all that happened was that the jpg opened in the original window. No arrow was visible...


  2. Annie: Initially, I had imagined mistakenly that it was the music of Domenico. In correcting this confusion, and substituting an image of the father Alessandro, I messed up the link to the actual music. I hope I've corrected my blunder.

  3. Thank you for having fixed the problem.
    Great moment listenting to this music - I like Scarlatti.
