A Scarlatti: La morte di Mitilde

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

Mitilde dies and with her dies the flame of Love. A challenging and fascinating example in RARA format, the recitatives travelling through widely disparate tonalities and the contrasting arias, one a stunning Adagio and one a classic cut-common rage against the tyrant, have very clearly defined characters and great musical values.

The source is a manuscript in the Naples collections. Editor: James Sanderson
