A Scarlatti: Io son Neron (Il Nerone)

Cantata à voce sola di soprano
Forces: soprano & continuo

This cantata was written in 1698 and is from a manuscript with a number of other mythological or historical themes rather than pastoral. The self-styled 'Emperor of the World', Nero, is certainly enjoying his ego! Florid and virtuosic. RARARAR format with a fiery recitative finish.
