A Scarlatti: Cantata notturna
Forces: mezzo-soprano, violins & continuo

'Filli che fra gl'orrori di notte si tranquilla'

Outpourings of the lover to Filli in the quiet of night. A concise yet heartfelt composition, dated 1706, for low-mezzo soprano and unison violins: an ideal introduction to the art of singing with an obligato part in Scarlatti's style.

Vocal range: d'-f''

A Scarlatti: Chi sà dove è la speranza
Forces: soprano, flute & continuo

Fillide is totally in love with Olindo and hopes that Cupid will support her love (she's not confident!) while he is away (lontananza). A lovely, simple example of a single line obligato accompaniment to soprano and continuo.

The source is Münster Santini Sammlung Hs 3975, provided by Sascha Mommertz. The cantata is simply inscribed Cantata a voce sola con flauto and there may be some question as to the attribution to A Scarlatti, although Hs 3975 contains a large number of cantatas ascribed to A Scarlatti.

A Scarlatti: Fille, Fille, dolente Fille
Forces: soprano & continuo

As the title suggests, Fille is sad...but, disturbingly, she likes the treatment she is getting from Tirsi: 'I will enjoy my pains, because I adore the chains...' Disturbing! A wonderful cantata in RARA format, Scarlatti at his most harmonically adventurous.

A Scarlatti: Fille, mia cara Fille
Forces: soprano & continuo

A wonderfully chromatic work from 1704 (November 4th), the chromaticism expressing the tortures of loving such an unfaithful woman as Fille (the usual). Long, complex recitatives and two very contrasting arias.

Range: d - f#'

A Scarlatti: Filli adorata, e cara
Forces: soprano & continuo

Why do these men suffer so? Despite being separated from his beloved, our protagonist sings of his love for her being the reason for his life. His soul yearns and his death will swiftly follow, should she not return. Yeah, right! RARA format, one aria slow and sinuous, the other fast and virtuosic.

A Scarlatti: Filli e Clori, 'Amica, hora che Aprile'
Forces: 2 sopranos, violins & continuo

Sources: edition based on 4 17th-early 18th century manuscripts in the Santini Collection (Münster), the British Library, and the Bodleian Library, Oxford. [the details are in the editorial notes]

Description: Filli persuades the reluctant Clori to abandon city life for the delights of the country, where she is sure to make new conquests in the hunt of love. Both Filli and Clori have 2 arias of 2 strophes each, interspersed with ritornelli. In the magical final duet, the girls agree to prepare their feet for dancing, and their arms for the hunt. Cardinal Ottoboni's documents mention a performance of 'Amica, hora che Aprile' dated 13 July, 1694. The survival of this work in several sources suggests it was a well-known work in its day.

Domenico Scarlatti's extraordinary setting of Metastasio's cantata. The format is two-part instrumental introduction, aria, recit, aria with typically virtuosic writing for both violins and voice.

Well, this girl is very open-minded, allowing Tirsi to love whomever he wishes (Nice, Clori, Egeria, Fille) because: The flighty bee is not content to long for the beautiful rose. If it can show itself a lover to other flowers, it wants to fly into the midst of them all...

Mancini: Or che di Primavera (La Primavera)
Forces: soprano & continuo

The Spring fills the heart of animals, birds and plants with Love, even that of our singer with his love for Fille. But, of course, Fille does not return this love and leaves him broken-hearted...the classic rejection cantata. Our erstwhile lover then warns that the Winter of old age will rob her of her Spring-like beauty and she will regret 'Yes, yes!' having spurned his love. In RARA format, the arias are particularly beautiful and the recitatives wander through some bizarre tonal language.
