Navigation etc.

  • The I-Vc manuscript score linked above is dated after Pescetti's death, so probably not an autograph manuscript, and gives piano as an option. The Peter August manuscript score linked above is earlier, and does not give piano as an option. Therefore, this page is tagged for harpsichord only.
  • All of the sonatas listed by Grove were for harpsichord, although there were other works for organ or keyboard.
