Product Notes

A one-off in Bach's output, Amore traditore is a model in style and structure of the Italian chamber cantata and although the surviving manuscript score is not in Bach's own hand, careful stylistic analysis has proved the piece is his. Far less familiar to the general public is Reinhard Keiser (1674-1739) who played a determining role in early 18th century German music. The cantata L'occaso di Titone all'Aurora oriente evokes the Greek myth of Eos (Dawn), daughter of Titan, sister of the Sun and Moon and mother of the four winds from the four points of the compass. Like Keiser, Johann David Heinichen (1683-1729) trained at the Thomasschule in Leipzig and is particularly well-known to harpsichordists for his two valuable treatises on basso continuo performance. A particularly fine example is Luci voi siete quelle, the text of which is Arcadian-style poetry. Händel's Roman cantatas certainly have the usual arcadian settings and pathos-laden themes of pastoral love affairs with allegorical reflections concerning love and beauty. Francesco Antonio Pistocchi (Palermo 1659 - Bologna 1756) is known today only to specialists although in his time he was celebrated as a great countertenor and composer by Charles Burney. In Germany, he composed the cantata Il Polifemo, the sixth in his collection Scherzi musicali op.2.
