This is the first in a new series of pieces, based on my love of the accordion and the music of the galante period. This is a quirky arrangment of Domenico Scarlatti's Sonata for Keyboard in G Major K 259 (L 103).
What I loved the most about composing this work was that I had the option to play around with the melody by passing it from instrumental group to instrumental group. The result is a shifting, ever changing, timbre which still retains a lot of the flavor of the original piece, far removed from the constraints of the piano.
