How good/complete/playable this reduction was i have no idea,...

It starts well, lovely tune, but fails to hold my interest for the l...

I have now got 32 of the sonatas, and it's looking like i'll b able to get at least 30 per day, quite possibly more, at that rate i should have the whole lot within 3 weeks.

What about the nlib.org.ua banner things at the bottom?

nlib.org.ua

Is this site ok for taking music from and uploaing here? Especially the re-typeset stuff (like scarlatti sonatas).

If it is ok to get stuff from, i may try and get the set of scarlatti sonatas there (450 out of 550) if people want these.

It was publised between 1923 and 1963, and i've searched the records and have found no trace of the copyright being renewed on either this orchestration or the original work...
