Scarlatti's music forms an important link between the early Baroque Italian vocal styles of the 17th century, with their centers in Florence, Venice and Rome, and the classical school of the 18th century, which culminated in Mozart.

After being kept in relative obscurity the music of Alessandro Scarlatti is making a glorious come back, and is recognised as at least as innovative, brilliant and profound as the music of his son, the famous Domenico Scarlatti. These “12 sinfonie di concerto grosso” are concertante works, either for a variety of solo instruments (concerto grosso) or for solo recorder and strings. These are delightful baroque concertos, brimming with energy, Italian charm and gusto. Played by Early Music group Capella Tiberina on historical instruments, Corina Marti is the recorder soloist, who already excelled in her recording of the Mancini recorder concertos on Brilliant Classics (BC 94324).

Recorded: 1999 | Brilliant Classics

A contemporary of Buxtehude and Lully, Alessandro Stradella (ca.1639-1682) remained in Italy his entire life. He benefited from important patrons in Rome, including Christina of Sweden. Here in the mid-seventeenth century, with the theatres being closed for over a decade, the cantata was at its height. Like many of the contemporary cantatas this particular Cantata for Christmas Eve was intended for performances at the palaces of the nobility. Only a hand full of musicians are needed for this charmingly intimate piece: three voices, 2 violins and basso continuo.

Following on from their successful recording of Vivaldi violin concertos under the label Eloquentia issued in 2008, Florian Deuter, Mónica Waismann and the ensemble Harmonie Universelle continue their exploration of the Venetian master’s music with their first CD for the label Accent. Alongside concertos for one violin (RV 246 and 330) and two violins (RV 510 and 208), the CD includes concertos and sinfonias for strings (RV 125, 128, 138, 157): with the exception of the concerto RV 510, these works are performed in their previously unedited original versions which have been specially prepared for this recording by the renowned Vivaldi expert Olivier Fourés who additionally provided the booklet essay with an informative insight into Vivaldi’s compositional concepts and his Venetian environment.

With this recording, the Purcell Quartet reach the mid-point in their six-part series of chamber music based on La Jolla, and although this CD is devoted to Geminiani, the only work on that tune is, in fact, his concerto grosso arrangement of Corelli's variations for violin (Op. 5 No. 12). In addition, they have chosen the G minor Concerto grosso (distinguished by Geminiani's remarkable concertino viola part, played to good effect by Alan George), two of Geminiani's original solo sonatas (giving Catherine Mackintosh and Elizabeth Wallfisch moments in which to shine) and trio arrangements of two of his violin sonatas.

Alessandro Scarlatti wrote over 600 cantatas, two of which are on this 1987 disc performed by soprano Lynne Dawson and the Purcell Quartet: Correa nel seno amato and Già lusingato appieno. He wrote considerably less keyboard music – and next to nothing compared with the gargantuan achievement of his son Domenico – one of which is on this disc performed by Robert Woolley, the harpsichordist of the Purcell Quartet: the Variations on La Folia. With the chamber cantatas flanking the keyboard variations, this disc is a wonderful program of the elder Scarlatti's art. Though there are some who might argue English soprano Dawson is perhaps too reserved for this repertoire, none would argue that she doesn't have a clear voice and a supple technique. And while there are others who might argue the Purcell Quartet is perhaps too stringent for the repertoire, none would argue they don't play together with consummate ease and they don't accompany Dawson with brilliant mastery. But there are few who would disparage Woolley's blindingly virtuosic and blazingly demonic La Folia Variations.

The music for harpsichord has been considered an inexplicable chance occurrence in Alessandro Scarlatti's output, and in assessing it, we should avoid unfair and unappropriate comparisons with the work of his exceptionally gifted son. Alessandro's cultural background was quite different and very precise in the way it affected keyboard music: Frescobaldi was the first in a series of figures who are known to a greater or lesser extent today and whose teaching came down to Scarlatti in a solid stylistic tradition. Pasquini, his extremely diligent and prolific contemporary, the last of the line, was strongly motivated by his patron, the Prince Borghese in writing harpsichord music. Alessandro also wished to try his hand in this area. 250th Anniversary Release. On the occasion of the 350th anniversary of Alessandro Scarlatti's birth (Palermo, 2 May 1660), Arcana is re-releasing this anthology of toccatas and fugues by the elder Scarlatti, father of the better-known Domenico.

In terms of their reputations, it is the misfortune of both Albinoni and Telemann that they shared their time and space with Vivaldi and Bach - respectively, the nonpareils of Venetian Baroque and Baroque everywhere else. Nonetheless, these oboe concerti of Albinoni testify to the considerable talents of the Red Priest's contemporaries. Three of the four concerti that begin CD1 (those in d, C and g) are probably the equals of anything that Vivaldi wrote for this instrument. They show the 51 year old composer (former dilettante now turned professional) at the height of his powers. Telemann's works on these discs, meanwhile - and especially the wonderful Sonata in g from 'Tafelmusik III' - show him at his most inspired…

Per la musicologia italiana Il martirio di Sant'Orsola di Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725) – il grande padre del grandissimo Domenico – questo Oratorio è degno di due soli dati, relativi alla (prima) esecuzione: il luogo, Lione, e l'incerta data, 1695-1700. È poco, ma è quello che passa il convento. Le ragioni di questa bella registrazione consistono nella presenza del manoscritto della partitura nella Biblioteca municipale di Lione, che conserva l'Oratorio con il congenere Davidis pugna et victoria di poco posteriore.Lasciata la natia Palermo da ragazzo…
