5.0 out of 5 stars Imagine, 300 Years in the Future ... March 11, 2013
Format:Audio CD
... that there are still opera houses and that they are still producing operas of the 19th Century, but with only passing mention of Wagner and never a staging! That's how it is with the operas of Alessandro Scarlatti, who composed his first opera at age 18 in 1679, 334 years ago, and his last (Griselda) in 1721, 292 years ago. Yet Scarlatti was widely acclaimed as "the greatest" in his own era; his reputation as the most influential survived among musicians, who had probably never heard a not of his music sung, until the age of Rossini, and among musicologists until the present. So where are the stagings? Where are even the studio recordings oh any of his sixty-six or more operas? The only complete recorded performances I know of are of La Griselda, though there is an amateurish DVD of his minor work Il Pastor di Corinto. Now that operas by Vivaldi, Cavalli, and Leonardo Vinci are being staged regularly and successfully around Europe, is it possible that we'll soon hear/see "dramas in music" by Scarlatti, including his supposed masterpiece Mitridate Eupatore, in productions as fine as the recent Artaserse by Vinci?

Scarlatti has been eulogized profusely over the three centuries since his lifetime as the "most modern" of Baroque composers, with the most advanced understanding of the psychology of modulation. Aside from his operas, composed for audiences in Naples, Rome, and Venice, Scarlatti wrote at least 500 cantatas for solo voice, 20 oratorios, and dozens of other "sacred" works. These works are finally becoming familiar, at least to cognoscenti, via superb recordings, like:

For a debut album, Daniela Barcellona chose Alessandro Scarlatti's opera arias.
Well, perhaps Senesino the castrato has been too much in the limelight of late, and his Handel operas showcased far too often in baroque albums.
This Alessandro Scarlatti album premiered several of the composer's little known operas: Telemaco, Marco Attilo Regolo, Il Tigrane, and Carlo re di'Allemagna. The other opera, La Griselda is also unknown to me, but apparently has been reocrded before by other singers.
The focus is mainly on Daniela Barcellona, a mezzo-soprano with such a beautiful and full timbre that I have not heard for a very long time.
Daniela's voice sounds rich and (jealousy) even in virtually all registers. She also has a very high degree of agility and is stylistically fully alert in the extracts from the various operas.
The sounds coming from her mouth is both lyrical and glorious. Such a timbre is undoubtedly the top pick for composers like Handel, Vivaldi, Porpora, Graun, Scarlatti...for substitutions of their castrati roles.
Mind you, Handel preferred, in case of absence of a good castrato, mezzo-sopranos in his primo uomo roles. And one would immediately associate Daniela Barcellona with these instances.
Truly, we have no shortage of top mezzos of late - Didonato, Bartoli, Kozena, Garanca, Nesi...
But NONE of them is of the same genre as Daniela Barcellona. One might have thought that Nathalie Stutzmann, the wonderful French contralto, would have come close to Barcellona. Or perhaps Sara Mingardo for that matter. However, I would have thought that both Stutzmann and Mingardo do not own as big a voice as Barcellona, or as full a voice.

5.0 out of 5 stars For Barcellona fans! February 20, 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
For lovers of Rossini operas, there is only one mezzo today who is really exciting (except for Joyce Di Donato) and she is Daniela Barcellona. She appears at Pesaro, LaScala, Paris Opera and many other places, but never the USA. She is scheduled to sing Italian Girl in Houston next season which is a very exciting prospect. She has made very few recordings and a few DVD's (Tancredi, Norma), so this Scarlatti disc is a real treat. There are so many notes sung in each aria that it perhaps better to listen to this disc a few tracks at a time. But it is a real joy and is highly recommended.
