Bustijn (1648-1729) was a Flemish composer admired by Bach. He wrote a set of 9 suites. Platti (1697-1763) was largely a composer of chamber and wrote sonatas for harpsichord which adapt well for the piano. Alessandro Scarlatti's toccatas are showpieces well worth hearing. His son Domenico is well known for his harpsichord sonatas, as is Antonio Soler.
