A Scarlatti: Che Sisifo infelice

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

The subject deals with that old favourite 'lontananza' or separation using the image of Sisyphus pushing rocks uphill to illustrate the hopelessness of the lover's cause. A cantata with much to recommend it, come great recitative and aria writing. RARA format.
