    Interesting thread, thanks for the pointers. The problem I've had when exploring Scarlatti's contemporaries is finding recordings on piano (I'm just not a fan of harpsichord). Any recommendations for specific recordings on piano would be much appreciated too!

    The rest of this fine recording is also on YouTube.

    Thanks for those. Credit to Claudio Colombo for the incredible work rate - he seems to have recorded almost everything! He's great for trying out rarities, although for baroque music I don't often enjoy his approach as the midi sequencing makes the ornaments sound unnatural IMHO.

    The Grinberg looks promising but alas isn't on Spotify so I'll have to go hunting.

    Soler has quite a few piano options. The recordings I've enjoyed most were from Marcela Roggeri, Elena Riu and Christopher Hinterhuber. There's also what looks like a complete set on Naxos. For Seixas, on Spotify there are two piano recordings by Anya Alexeyev and Jose Eduardo Martins but the vast majority are on harpsichord. For lesser-known contemporaries, very little if anything.

    Roggeri: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mkCnsW2WWgZTuG3j3eFol0mXxaG2 8IY3k

    Riu: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mma3bkPLn5rCi7NBo3FdPSEXs6Yr O5VCU

    Hinterhuber:

    Alexeyev: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=OLAK5uy_mDgMtKU1x25u37j77wzS_X5RFyrz cVky4

    No playlist for the Martins album, but there are a few sonatas on his YT channel: https://youtu.be/aGCUANPCpu4

    Based on recommendations from this forum, I picked up recordings by Pletnev and Zacharias to go with the Horowitz disc I've had for ages. All worth having. I would also recommend Narciso Yepes' guitar transcriptions.

    There's some wonderful playing on Yevgeny Sudbin's two CDs on the BIS label, though some of his embellishments are a tad florid.
