Scarlatti – Euridice dall'Inferno

Today, I’ve been listening to an album of music by Alessandro Scarlatti, performed by Ars Lyrica Houston.

They present première recordings of two works – Euridice dall’Inferno and La concettione della Beata Vergine – alongside Cello Sonata No. 2 in C Minor and the Toccata in A Major.

It’s a wonderful collection, with elegant and refined performances that nevertheless carry emotional weight.
