I have started learning Scarlatti K29 from the Editio Musica Budapest Urtext edition. This has a lot of hand crossing where I end up in a pianistic straitjacket at extreme ends of the piano. I presumed that Scarlatti did this for some sort of technical study as well as showing off. However, I have seen several other editions of this Sonata and the hand crossing has been mostly removed by swapping the hands around.
I include the Urtext and non-Urtext below. Does anyone have any thoughts on which way would be better to play this? Given the fast tempo, I am wondering if I should keep persevering with the straitjacket method, or go for what seems like an easier option as seen in the second image below. From a stingy point of view, the Urtext edition cost ???s so I'm not keen on buying another copy of it. Part of me also quite likes the challenge of showing off but it is giving me a bit of an arm ache!
