    (October 26, 1685-July 23, 1757)
    Birth name was Giuseppe Domenico Scarlatti
    Known for his keyboard music
    Wrote over 500 keyboard sonatas (‘Essercizi’)
    Son of Alessandro Scarlatti
    He was a child prodigy.
    He belonged to a secret society.
    George Frideric Handel beat him in an organ-playing contest.
    Although he was a music teacher for children, none of his own children became good musicians.
    His father exploited his musical talents.
    When he said he wanted to make his own living, his father stopped speaking to him.
    Although Handel beat him in the organ-playing contest, Scarlatti tied him in a harpsichord-playing one.
    When his cat walked over the keys of his harpsichord, he turned it into a musical piece, ‘The Cat’s Fugue.’
    He influenced Chopin and Brahms.
    His keyboard works are still popular.
    Today he is more famous than his father (the best revenge).
