Bustijn was Flemish and was admired by Bach.
Chopin's mazurkas are familiar pieces and
require no comment. J.C.Smith was the son of
J. Schmidt, Handel's amanuensis and was an
accomplished composer, bringing out several
volumes of Suites. Bernardo Pasquini was an
early Italian master who taught Georg Muffat
and F. Richter. Domenico Scarlatti rivals Bach
in originality and musicality.
I have varied the material on the repeats, as was the custom.
