Notes & Reviews:

As compositions, Alessandro Scarlatti's Sinfonie di concerto grosso are a curiously mixed bag; only the first is a proper 'sinfonia', while the second is described as a 'Concertata con li ripieni'; eight of the twelve are actually recorder concertos and the other four are concertos featuring various combinations of instruments. Although Scarlatti may have thrown the term around rather loosely, however, the diverse collection brims with his characteristic inventiveness, performed with aplomb by Corina Marti and the Capella Tiberina. Despite the diverse instrumentation Scarlatti employed, each symphony is structured in a fairly similar way. In general they consist of five movements, with two fast movements framed by three slower ones. The short introduction in quick time, culminating in a suspended cadence, owes much to the brilliant initial Presto of the opera sinfonie, while the second or third movement is invariably a one- or two-subject fugue. The slow movements are more varied in form and often feature a beautifully lyrical melody. Only one of the Scarlatti symphonies bears a characteristic title of its own: "La geniale". This does not necessarily allude to anything extravagant or extraordinary in the music, but rather refers to something that is "congenial", particularly loved by audiences or the composer, a concept akin to the way Vivaldi felt about his Favorito RV277. Capella Tiberinawas founded by Alexandra Nigito in order to blend a passion for early music with a rigorous approach to musicological research. Such research is displayed on this disc, which was recorded in different dispositions relying on the documentary evidence of performances from the time. They perform on historical instruments and feature young and highly talented musicians, specializing in Baroque music - the perfect accompaniment for acclaimed recorder soloist Corina Marti, who brings her beautifully tempered playing to the four solo recorder concertos.
