Domenico Scarlatti or even "Mimmo" as he was affectionately called, had a very clear vision of the possible and the impossible of the easy and the difficult and this emerges not only from his sonatas but also from the Symphonies including Symphony No. 1 in A major .

His courage, this "daring game" as he liked to call it, goes to the extremes of instrumental and compositional technique.

The form of these symphonies escapes any formal logic in vogue in their time. The function was to amaze, excite.

Generally divided into three times overcoming the structure of the suite, they do not give rise to development artifices, they appear as completed and unchangeable thoughts.

The daring game is not only harmonic, but rhythmic and melodic. In the symphony no. 4 the Scarlattian genius anticipates sounds that will be by Rossini and in the symphony n. 7 in the third movement the whole

sunshine of the music of the city that generated it, Naples.
