Domenico Scarlatti (born 26 October 1685 in Naples, died July 23, 1757 in Madrid) was an Italian composer and harpsichordist.

Domenico Scarlatti was the son and pupil of Alessandro Scarlatti. After some years as a composer and organist in his hometown, he spent a period in Venice. In 1709 he moved to Rome, where he was employed by the exiled Polish queen Maria Casimira, for whose private theater he created a number of operas, including La Sylvia and Amor d'un ombra. When the queen left the city took Scarlatti short service with the Portuguese ambassador. 1715-19 he was conductor of Cappella Giuliana at St. Peter's Basilica, where he performed his big Stabat Mater. From 1720 or 1721 he was conductor at the Portuguese court and harpsichord teacher of Princess Maria Barbara. He came with his student when she in 1729 became Queen of Spain. He maintained throughout life related to Maria Barbara, whom he dedicated his possibly last work, Salva Regina.

Scarlatti composed in a variety of genres, but it is his 555 or more short sonatas for harpsichord, which has earned him status as one of music history's great composers
