As a young man he is said to have engaged in friendly keyboard competition with his contemporary Handel, and thereafter the two had lifelong admiration for each other.

Handel and Bach were the masters of the organs, but it was recorded that Scarlatti's harpsichord performances were superior to Handel's. Scarlatti was lucky to have personal contacts with Handel while Bach's great desire to meet Handel never was fulfilled during the lifetime on this planet.
What divine music!
