Notes & Reviews:

Although Alessandro Melani certainly numbers among the most underrated and most infrequently studied composers of the seventeenth century, it was he who produced the best setting of the Don Giovanni subject prior to Mozart with his L'empio punito of 1669. His "mini-opera" 'L'Europa' is a "festa teatrale" focusing on the Phoenician maiden who surrendered to her abductor, Jupiter in bovine guise, and thus founded Western civilization. The music is conveyed with such freshness, intelligence, and dramatic vividness that we have to assign Melani a first place in the ranks of composers between Cavalli, Cesti, and Scarlatti.
