Catalogue Number: 08Q017
Label: Pan Classics
Reference: PC 10303
Description: Think of this as a highlights disc from a never-recorded 1697 opera which was only identfied as by Scarlatti and not by his great rival Perti after these artists had decided to record the music. Three of the arias are notable for the use of the cornet, an instrument well on its way out of use by this time. Italian-German texts. Alice Borciani (soprano), Alex Potter (countertenor), Musica Fiorita; Daniela Dolci
