    No, cannot find anything on Youtube either, though listening to his lute suite recordings, he is a find player

    I admire Barenboim too, but more so as a conductor than as a pianist. He has a very fine sense of musicality and connects deeply with both the music he performs and his audience. I love watching interviews with him and his youtube videos where he talks about music that he loves. I won’t speak on the situation in Israel (being an American), but it seems to me that Barenboim’s stance is relatively level headed.

    I am actually beginning to appreciate his pianism a bit more lately. He has a very good disc of Beethoven’s Diabelli Variations on Erato. I’ll check out this Scarlatti video when I go on break at work.

    Favorites:

    On piano - Horowitz and Pletnev. I've been meaning to check out Sudbin on Tidal.
    On harpsichord - Ross and Hantai.
    Guitar - Yepes. I have some other guitar transcription, but for duos. That doesn't work as well for me. Luckily, Yepes has a 10 string guitar. (I would love to hear what Goren Sollscher would do with Scarlatti on his 11 string guitar.)

    Thanks for mentioning Yepes, if I had heard it before, I’d forgotten,

    I was interested to hear this music played with such seriousness, objectivity and sobriety.

    It makes me think of some keyboard players' approach to Scarlatti -- Francesco Cera, the last recording by Ralph Kirkpatrick, Colin Tilney even.

    One guy I've started to explore is Paul Galbraith. I'm listening to his Louis Couperin most, but he's done some Bach
