Earlier this month, pianist Alon Goldstein took the Ravinia Festival stage at Bennett Gordon Hall for a program highlighting the inventiveness and influence of Domenico Scarlatti, drawing a line from the prolific Baroque composer to Beethoven, Schumann, Ginastera, and Bernstein.

While in Chicago, Goldstein also visited WFMT to perform selections from this program live on Impromptu. Click here to watch video excerpts of Goldstein sharing two sonatas by Scarlatti in WFMT’s Levin Performance Studio.
