Alessandro Scarlatti
Recommended Recordings



Cantatas Volume 3
(Brian Asawa; Arcadian Academy; Nicholas McGegan, conductor )
The Italian baroque composer Alessandro Scarlatti (1660-1725) wrote more than 600 solo voice cantatas, five of which are included on Volume III of this BMG series. They are performed by the Japanese American countertenor Brian Asawa and the period instruments of the U.S.-based Arcadian Academy, which takes its name from a 17th-century society of artistic and aristocratic intellectuals living in Rome. They would meet weekly for arty discussions and sponsored the careers of certain artists, Alessandro Scarlatti included.
