Each of the hundreds of brief musical gems in binary form that were called "sonatas" by Scarlatti is a study of a particular idea -- a fingering technique, a phrase or certain instrumental timbre, a way of creating unusual harmonies, an obsessively cycling motif changed only gradually until it reaches a resolution hardly expected by the listener, and so on. In this sonata, the central gestural idea is that of the anticipatory beat. This creates some wonderful momentary harmonies, and even in the Andantino Cantabile tempo gives a lilt to the melody revealing Iberian influences -- to quote the brilliant keyboardist Wanda Landowska who revived much early music: "When we hear Scarlatti 's music, we know that we are in the climate of sunlight and warmth. It is Italy, it is Spain. The theme opens with a slow arpeggio followed by a descending scale that introduces the gentle skipping rhythm of the anticipation. The line begins to work its way upward again by faster runs in the fourth measure.
