The vibrant musical city of Naples is perhaps most famous for its contributions to baroque opera, led by Alessandro Scarlatti. Less well-known is its reputation as a hot-spot for soloistic Recorder music written by leading Neapolitan baroque composers including Mancini, Fiorenza, Barbella, and Vinci as well as Scarlatti himself. Our programme selects some of the best examples of sonatas, concerti and cantatas for recorder with continuo, strings and voice, many of which are rarely performed.
