Description: This collection stands out not only for the range of the vocal part - from simple melodies to exuberant rouladles and demanding ingenious ornamentation - but for the unusual orchestration Ariosti demands: lots of first violins and continuo cellos, often overwhelming the middle parts. And one aria has a part for solo theorbo and another for two high cellos. Not the same old stuff. Italian-English texts. Filippo Mineccia (countertenor), Ensemble Odysee; Andrea Friggi.
