One of Scarlatti's masterpieces for soprano with violins. This solo Serenata, introduced by its Corellian Sinfonia, traces the journey of a lover who aims to steal a glimpse of the sleeping beloved. The image of love as a flower pushing through the icy ground, with shivering violin figures, leads to the final sublime aria and unaccompanied farewell of the lover.

Range: d'- a'''

Aria 3, violins marked 'soli' in one source.

Bononcini: Irene Idolo amato
Forces: soprano & continuo

Within the classic 'partenza' cantatas this is unusual as it refers directly to going off to war and perhaps dying in battle. Some lovely linguistic turns and this RARA format cantata.

Bononcini: O penosa lontananza
Forces: soprano, bass & continuo

Here we see both sides of the coin with the soprano lamenting the pain of separation and the bass rejoicing that being so far apart there is less pain... This is a wonderful duetto da camera in Duet - recit - aria - recit- aria - duet format. One for each and the two duets surrounding all.
