Luigi Boccherini is considered to be one of the most prolific composers of chamber music. The high quality of his dramatic output is shown in his moving Stabat Mater and in 15 Concert Arias, for soprano and orchestra.

The Italian texts of the Arie Accademiche are by the famous Metastasio, and are based on classic mythology. The fluid melodic invention and the arresting dramatic effects confirm that Boccherini is well able to stand in the company of his famous contemporary operatic composers.

Beautifully sung by soprano Sandra Pastrana, who sang regularly with Riccardo Muti, Gianluigi Gelmetti and other famous conductors. The booklet contains liner notes as well as the sung texts.
