Notes & Reviews:

Tempesta di Mare, the Chamber Players from the Philadelphia Baroque Orchestra, have chosen cantatas by Alessandro Scarlatti which best show the range of invention for one voice and a small complement of players. Scarlatti's specialty was the cantata, the operatic equivalent of the short story, in which music and narrative are distilled to their core, resulting in beautiful and moving but succinct multi-movement vocal works. Tempesta di Mare have programmed four rarely performed Scarlatti cantatas and invited the soprano Clara Rottsolk to join them. The disc is completed with a Concerto thought to date from the end of Scarlatti's career. Scarlatti was very well known in his time and certainly inspired a young Handel, who was a frequent visitor to Rome's Arcadian Academy.

"There can be little doubt that Scarlatti's cantatas (reputedly more than 700) are consistently delightful...Rottsolk's voice is supple and stylish, and deals admirably with some very difficult technical arias...the performances are unflaggingly attractive and reveal one beautifully crafted aria after another." -Gramophone Magazine
