Keyboard Sonata in D


Cimarosa 1749-1801 was an Italian composer who belonged to the Neapolitan school and he is remembered particularly for his operas. His keyboard music was played on both the piano and the harpsichord whilst many pieces have been transcribed for the classical guitar. Most of his keyboard movements requires a lightness of keyboard touch - the realisation plays at 92 quarter (crotchet) beats to the minute. In the hands of a skilled player thoroughly conversant with keyboard style of the period there are opportunities to embellish the melody line and add additional ornaments. The music is full of charm and musical ideas offering the opportunity to develop staccato, staccatissimo and legato playing. The music editor suggests that generally on repeating notes changing the finger used on each note is the best option. Cimarosa’s keyboard music is well worth investigating although authentication of his work is a something yet to be confirmed. Understand that the keyboard sonatas attributed to Cimarosa are short one movement works and any groupings of works in the same key found on recordings are editorial. They are works with appeal and consistent in their quality. A plain score is appended to the edited music score.
