Toccatas and various compositions (Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra, Secção dos Reservados, Ms. MM 60)
Editors: Andrea Macinanti, Francesco Tasini
Series: Alessandro Scarlatti. Complete Works for Keyboard
Publication Date: 2007
Pages: pp. 144
The third volume of Alessandro Scarlatti’s complete works comprises ms. MM 60 kept at the Coimbra University Library (Biblioteca Geral da Universidade de Coimbra, Portugal – Secção dos Reservados). The -manuscript contains pieces specifically ascribed to Scarlatti, as the title in c. 61r shows: Sonate / Per / ORGANO / Del / Sig.r / Alesandro Scarlatti. The section following a new heading in c. 107r – TOCCATE / per Organo – can also be considered Scarlatti’s work; a confirmation of this assessment stems from cc. 107v-109v, Toccata, and 109v-110v, Fuga in G major, both of which pieces also feature in the Higgs ms. (New Haven, Yale University, Misc. Ms. 164) as well as in ms. Add. 32161 (London, British Library) and, moreover, the same Toccata is also comprised in ms. 3958 in Münster’s Diözesanbibliothek (Santini Collection).
The extensive initial section in ms. MM 60 cc. 1r-38v, with no indication of authorship, is included in an Addendum; its excellent-quality musical writing is perfectly in keeping with Alessandro Scarlatti’s style, though at the moment the music cannot be attributed to him with any degree of certainty; the music resembles some of Gaetano Franzaroli’s Risposte d’Organo, also comprised in the same manuscript.
