080 Three Sonatas Domenico Scarlatti Top
  Viola and double bass duo arr. Paul Silverthorne
  A stimulating arrangement of three of Scarlatti’s keyboard sonatas (Kp.278 in D, Kp.427 in G, and Kp.537 in A). “Written for nimble-fingered harpsichordists, and originally titled, con Velocita, presto and prestissimo, a more moderate tempo might be forgiven for slower, dignified invertebrates such as these two instruments.” [Mary Nemet] See review…

Parts are provided in score format for viola and double bass (orchestral tuning only).
