Scarlatti: Con eco d'amore

"The music is fascinating, often revelatory, the playing of The English Concert first-rate (Laurence Cummings always has a precise ear for texture and colour), while the mingled grace, brilliance and expressive intensity of Watts' singing could hardly be bettered." Richard Wigmore (Gramophone Editor's Choice), Gramophone , October 2015

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 The English Concert led by Laurence Cummings.
