Faro La Vendetta by Alessandro Scarlatti

Farò la vendetta Text by anonymous poet set by Alessandro Scarlatti Farò la vendetta che a me s’aspetta di quel perfido traditor che mi ha sì vilipesa fammi star così sospesa ed ha dato ad altri il cor. I will take vengeance that awaits me on that perfidious traitor that has so scorned me causing me to hang in doubt and has given his heart to others. Brief background on the composer: Pietro Alessandro Gaspare Scarlatti was an Italian composer born in Palermo, Sicily, and was alive from 1660-1725. A large amount of his life was spent in Rome, Italy among noble men and women, and royal court circles. During his time in Rome, it was claimed that he was a student of Carissimi. Scarlatti composed his first opera in Rome which marked the beginning of his professional music career. A majority of his musical life revolved around operatic compositions and religious set pieces. He began to accumulate fame after he had already written 115 operas which, the first of which won over the queen of Sweden, Queen Christina, and remained in her service as a composer until 1684. Scarlatti then became the maestro di cappella for the royal service where he composed a further 40+ operas, and other compositions simply for the musical entertainment of the royal court. Scarlatti moved on to the city of Florence, Italy in 1702 where he was commissioned to write 4 operas for the theatre of Prince Ferdinando III de Medici, but these works have unfortunately gone missing as far as scholars and musicians are aware. He returned to Naples eventually through the persuasion of a pay raise, and was also knighted and titled "Cavaliere" in 1716. Alessandro Scarlatti continued to be commissioned and employed by so many more over his life until his death in 1725, including but not limited to Cardinal Pietro Ottoboni, Pope Clement XI, Santa Maria Maggiore in Rome, and more. His music lives on and is continuously performed and admired by musicians all around the world. His music always has fantastic texture changes for the time, and he could instruct the best harmonies and sounds with the instrumentation that he tended to work with.

Si Riscaldi il Tebro by Alessandro Scarlatti

SI RISCALDI IL TEBRO text by anonymous author Si riscaldi il Tebro e l'onda de suoi flutti al mormorar canti a lui lodi d'amor. Vezzosetta poi risponda questi cantici d'onor delle auree al sussurar Let the Tiber warm up, and let the murmuring undulation of its waves sing to him praises of love. Let her then respond charmingly to these canticles of honor at the whispering of the breeze.
