A gentle interlude

Welcome! 🙂 I hope the daily music posts here on the blog are giving you a boost, in these strange and unsettling times. If you’re new to the series and would like to check out earlier posts, you’ll find the first one here.

Today’s post is a favorite sonata by Domenico Scarlatti, one of the great names of the Baroque era. Scarlatti’s sonatas are short, only a couple of minutes each, and often light and elegant and dancelike. This particular sonata is sweet and peaceful, a good mental break if you’re having a stressful day.

I’ll keep the intro to a minimum since I’m a bit late with today’s post. 😉 As you listen, if you’d like, see if this music conjures up any particular scene for you. Does it make you imagine a specific place? Maybe a certain time period? Or maybe just a setting you know well, that suits the mood of the music? As always, you’re welcome to share your thoughts and responses to the music in the comments.
