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.
