Rivolse Clori un giorno by Tomaso Giovanni Albinoni (1671-1751). Edited by Michael Talbot. For Soprano voice and basso continuo. Full score and parts. 10+2x4(x) pages. Published by Edition HH Music Publishers (HH.HH154-FSP).
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.
