Keyboard Sonata in D K.443


This is a plain score version in that it has minimal score detail characteristic of music printed and published from the baroque era. A very appealing keyboard sonata although there are surprisingly not many recordings of the sonata available. Whilst the composers style is in evidence it is also a work in which a variety of moods are explored. A tempo of 96 half note (mimim) beats to the minute is suggested and used in the realisation. It is a sonata allowing the player to explore options in legato and staccato keyboard articulations. Interestingly there are interpretations in which the performers improvise around the shapes offering rhythmic variants and something more than just additional ornaments. In the ornamentation particularly at cadences there is a script but there is a tendency for some performers to become very individual and possibly rather extreme!
