5.0 out of 5 stars Bravura in Naples June 7, 2008
Format:Audio CD
Orphan boys in 17th Century Naples enjoyed the possibility of a first-rate musical education at one of four charity institutions called "conservatorii." The boys earned their keep by performing for pay at religious services, the Church being still the great patron of music in Italy. Francesco Mancini (1672-1737) was such a musical orphan, who became the organist of his conservatory but who went on to serve as the assistant and eventual successor to Alessandro Scarlatti in the position of maestro di capella for the Austrian viceroy of Naples. The six concerto-sonatas by Mancini on this CD come from a 1725 joint publication with the great Scarlatti.

In the collection of 1725, both terms - concerto and sonata - are applied to the same pieces. Certainly the prominence of the alto recorder gives the impression of typical concerto virtuosity , but the integration of the recorder with the other voices and the structure of movements more resemble sonata form. In any case, the recorder sets the pace and dominates the musical affect with its glittering passages of fast notes and its mellow cantabile in slower passages. The two pieces by other composers, a concerto by Francesco Durante and a sinfonia by Domenico Scarlatti, offer the violins a share of the limelight. The Durante piece is reminiscent of Vivaldi in a harmonically wry mood.

There's more to playing the recorder than wagging one's fingers up and down. The instrument has suffered from its elementary school and Trapp Family associations. It is, indeed, the easiest wind instrument on which to play your first melody, but to achieve the technique necessary to perform these Mancini concerti requires as much aptitude and discipline as any other serious instrument.
