D. Scarlatti: La Dirindina
This month Federico Guglielmo and his historical instruments ensemble L’arte dell’arco turn to sinfonias and sonatas by Domenico Scarlatti and to the same composer’s short intermezzo farce La Dirindina. The intermezzo was a type of entr’acte music inserted as ‘comic relief’ between the acts of court dramas and operas during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. This particular farsetta involves the personal relations between a budding opera diva and her teacher; she is vain and reluctant to practice, and he is extremely jealous of her lover.

Scarlatti: Salve Regina
Carlos Mena (countertenor)
Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla, Nicolau de Figueiredo
Scarlatti composed his Salve Regina for voice and strings after completing all the sonatas and here it is performed by a countertenor. Interestingly, this CD also includes Avison’s Concerto No.5 in D minor In seven parts done from the lessons of Scarlatti and Scarlatti’s Sonatas based on Avison’s concertos Nos. 5 and 10. Orquesta Barroca de Sevilla is one of the foremost Spanish early music ensembles.
“Nicolau de Figueiredo encourages some profoundly satisfying string textures that possess strength and depth in phrases where the devotional text and Scarlatti's string-writing invite compassion, and Mena's singing has both authority and severity...the performances are routinely fantastic.” Gramophone Magazine, July 2011
