The Scarlatti Family
Alessandro and Domenico For more than a century, members of the family were noted musicians. While
Alessandro concentrated on operas and cantatas in Naples, his son was a tireless provider of keyboard music for the courts of Iberia.
Orchestral music and cantatas of a martial and pastoral nature by Alessandro are interspersed with related keyboard sonatas by Domenico.
The programme also includes one of Alessandro's cantatas for Christmas, together with a work in a similar vein by Domenico. Producer GRAHAM DIXON
