Notes & Reviews:

The standard edition recording of this work was released earlier this year to rave reviews, and now is available in stunning Blu-ray audio. The Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra and Chorale are the first ensembles to perform this recently discovered masterpiece. The 300 year old serenata was composed by Alessandro Scarlatti in 1716 to celebrate the birth of Prince John Leopold, Charles VI's son. The composition was completed in just a few weeks, and was immediately performed in Naples following John Leopold's birth. "Copious praise is due the orchestra, and to McGegan for fleshing out the score's abundant felicities. Listen to Moore's Act Two aria, "Canta dolce il rossignuolo" (The nightingale sings sweetly), and marvel at the supremely lovely manner in which the orchestra lilts and sways under and around the voice. The chirping of the winds and the interplay of timbres is masterful. Turn off the lights, put on this recording, and revel in bliss." (Jason Victor Serinus, San Francisco Classical Voice) This recording is made possible by a generous donation from the Waverly Fund.
