Pianist Javier Perianes*** performs the Adagio from Sonata Nº1 in C Minor by Manuel Blasco de Nebra (1750-1784)  It has a nocturnal character that is a running theme of Musica della sera (Music of the Evening).

With very much the same nocturnal character, this is a work by Domenico Scarlatti, the Sonata in G Minor, K. 8*, performed by Eteri Andjaparidze, piano
