Conductor: Ingrid Matthews
Orchestra/Ensemble: Seattle Baroque Orchestra
Recorded in 2001 at Bastyr University, Kenmore, WA, this baroque work was written when opera was banned in Rome (1683), so this work takes the ostensible format of an oratorio. This is convenient since the famous Abraham/Sarah/Hagar/Ishmael story is from the Book of Genesis, chapter 21, and the opera takes the point where Abraham’s wife Sarah insists that he must banish the slave Hagar and her son Ishmael to protect their own son Isaac’s inheritance. In Genesis, Ishmael was fathered by Abraham at the urging of the then barren Sarah, who later (at an advanced age) to everyone’s surprise bore a son, Isaac. The anguished father very reluctantly agrees to banish the two, who end up nearly dying in the desert but are eventually, at the oratorio’s end, saved by an Angel.
This work offers an excellent example of Alessandro Scarlatti’s vocal and dramatic facility and his engaging manner of setting melody to appropriately varied, effectively complementary accompaniment.
All of the drama in this two-part work centres on the interaction of the four main characters (the Angel delivers the final aria). There are no choruses or significant orchestral sections save for the opening Sinfonia. It contains wonderful arias (both accompanied by continuo and by orchestra), flowing recitatives, and occasional duets. It’s a very compact, tightly constructed piece of theatre that moves right along, and it’s filled with lovely music.
