Pianist Jacqueline Ogeil plays Scarlatti
Jacqueline Ogeil’s doctoral dissertation on Domenico Scarlatti’s sonatas strengthened the case that the composer was writing primarily for the new-fangled invention of Bartolomeo Cristofori that we now call the piano. Ogeil subsequently commissioned a copy of one of Cristofori’s instruments, completed in Germany in 2015, the only instrument of its type in the southern hemisphere.
In this Melbourne recital she performs the last eleven sonatas that Scarlatti published in 1738 under the title Essercizi with digital projection of her hands to illuminate the complex hand-crossings involved. By K29 her hands are often playing in reverse order and crossed over.
Presented by Melbourne Recital Centre and Accademia Arcadia
