Olimpia - Cantatas of Alessandro Scarlatti
Description: Within the repertoire of the Italian pastoral cantata, no composer produced more vivid or varied music than Alessandro Scarlatti. The musical imagery and declamation is of striking originality and abounds in melodic simplicity and lyrical beauty. Equally masterly is the variety of Scarlatti's phrasing, unmatched by any of his Italian contemporaries.

Rosalind Halton has painstakingly researched these works and the booklet notes are comprehensive in their information about each Cantata presented. Performed as authentically as possible by Chacona and a cast of some of Australia's finest singers, this 2CD set is bound to satisfy all lovers of Alessandro Scarlatti's music.
Performers: Jane Edwards (soprano), James Sanderson (countertenor), Vivien Hamilton (soprano), Miriam Allan (soprano), Rosalind Halton (harpsichord), chacona - Rosalind Halton, director.
Composers: Alessandro Scarlatti.
