With a voice described as one of the most beautiful Britain has seen in a generation (International Record Review), Elizabeth Watts has established herself among the brightest talents performing today. In this selection of rarely heard Alessandro Scarlatti arias from his cantatas, oratorios and operas, she is joined by the acclaimed period instrument ensemble The English Concert led by Laurence Cummings.
Perhaps the only criticism I might lay against Ms Watts is that she is perhaps a tinge 'arid' at the lower end of her (considerable) range, but it's minor. Lawrence Cummings directs Watts and the instrumentalists of The English Consort with great sensitivity to the needs of the works. It's a very welcome addition to the rather meagre discography of such a fine, influential and prolific composer and it's about time we had more. The booklet has four pages of notes on the pieces plus libretti and translations.
