Tomaso Albinoni

Rivolse Clori un giorno

Soprano voice and basso continuo

ed. Michael Talbot

This cantata, from an important manuscript in Berlin containing 18 Albinoni cantatas for soprano and continuo, is on the common subject of a lover's jealousy. Clori falls in love with Fileno at first sight, but he proves unfaithful to her and a lovers' quarrel ensues. The music, by turns wistful and assertive, follows Clori's see-sawing emotions, ending with a show of defiance. Albinoni's finely chiseled, undulating vocal line demonstrates his great gifts as a melodist.
