Editorial Reviews

In the eighteenth century, the cantata was considered to be the supreme test of a composer s artistry. On this disc, three fine examples by Alessandro Scarlatti are joined by settings of the Salve regina by Domenico Scarlatti (Alessandro s sixth son) and Johann Adolf Hasse (a pupil). The work by Hasse is distinctly operatic with florid vocal and instrumental lines, and the younger Scarlatti similarly finds himself drawn away from religious deference to a more flamboyant style.

A REISSUE OF A 1996 RECORDING AT A REDUCED PRICE!

Domenico Scarlatti's (1685-1757), the sixth son of Alessandro, reputation rests mainly on his enormous output, amounting to some 550 sonatas. Most of his fifteen known operas are lost, as are the majority of his oratorios and cantatas. In his sacred music Domenico shows elements of harmonic richness and melodic individuality but the main features of his settings of emotive texts are tuneful melodies which mix relgious deference with occasional elements of opera, well demonstrated in this fine setting of 'Salve Regina'.

Alessandro (1660-1725) with his more than six hundred cantatas, the majority of which are for solo voice with only continuo for accompaniment, has established himself by far the most prolific composer of cantatas of this era. Contemporary trends have moved towards the addition of instrumental accompaniments; usually strings and obbligato instruments in a high tessitura as demonstrated by the trumpet in his cantata 'Su le sponde del Tebro'.

Johann Adolf Hasse (1699-1783), has a huge compositional output that includes at least thirteen settings of the 'Salve Regina' (I REALLY LIKE THIS ONE.) Its style is distinctly operatic, mixing an attractive simplicity of melody with florid instrumental and vocal lines which are eminently suited to the voice.

The performance of these works under the capable direction of Robert King is flawless. For the listener what remains is whether the music and the individual performances are to your liking. James Bowman, countertenor, is an expericenced and skilled interpreter of what he sings. However, his diction sounds a bit unclear at times due to his overpowering and somewhat 'foggy' vocal quality.

EXCELLENT SELECTION OF EARLY MUSIC

Domenico Scarlatti's (1685-1757) reputation today rests mainly on his enormous output of keyboard music. Most of his 15 known operas are lost, as are the majority of his oratorios and cantatas. Most of Domenico's sacred compositions date from 1713-1719, whilst he was 'Maestro di Cappella at the Basilica Guilia in Rome.

In his sacred music he showed elements of harmonic richness and melodic individuality, but the main features of his settings of emotive sacred texts are tuneful melodies mixed with occasional elements of the opera. His 'Salve Regina' displays such elegance of line and rich harmony combined with an operatic style.

Alessandro Scalatti (1660-1725), the father of Domenico. wrote more than 600 cantatas, and established himself as by far the most prolific cantata composer of his era. Most of his cantatas are for solo voice, usually with only continuo for accompaniment, but in his last 60 cantatas he added strings, and sometimes recorders and trumpets. There are three that appear on this disc dating around 1744. They are:'Cantata Su le sponde del Tebro '(On the Banks of the Tiber)- 'Cantata Infirmata vulnerata' (Weak and wounded for want of Pure Love)-and 'Cantata O di Betlemme altera' (O noble and unfortunate poverty of Bethlehem).

Johann Adolf Hasse (1699-1783) was extremely popular both in Germany (where he studied with Alessandro Scarlatti) and Italy. His principal employment in his early years was as a tenor with the Hamburg Opera, which may account for the lyrical style in which he wrote. Amongst a huge compositional output there are at least 13 settings of the 'Salve Regina' attrlibuted to Hasse. The one on this disc is considered to be the most popular; it is dated 1744.

The previous reviewer is more enthusiastic than I about this compilation CD. The works are all very interesting, and the musicians are more than capable(especially the soprano, Deborah York). But these works are highly dramatic -- or at least they should be -- yet the performances are frequently "flat" and unvaried. I suppose King, as the director, is mostly responsible for the overall approach. No composer sounds different than the others, in his generally way-too-smooth, overly careful set of readings. (The acoustic balance has also been engineered to be uniform.) The one exception is Hasse's SALVE REGINA, which does get a fine reading (Bowman is at his best here), and collectors may want to buy the CD for that piece alone. I am not an expert in this period's vocal music, but I have certainly heard more exciting versions of Scarlatti's cantatas (I am eager to hear the CD series by McGegan & Daniels), and I imagine that Domenico Scarlatti's Salve Regina is better served on the 2012 CD led by Figuereido (though I haven't heard it). Finally, the pedant in me is impelled to point out that King has made a pretty bizarre error in the CD labeling and booklet notes: Alessandro Scarlatti's INFIRMA VULNERATA is a Latin motet, not an Italian secular cantata about "unrequited love"! True, Baroque composers often treated these vocal genres in similar ways, but the uninitiated listener will miss the connections, since the word motet is nowhere to be found in the booklet.
