Arias and Cantatas from 17th-century Rome by Antonio Francesco Tenaglia and Carlo Caproli Antonio Francesco Tenaglia and Carlo Caproli were among the leading composers of vocal music in the 17th century. Their arias and cantatas, composed for exclusive private musical gatherings in the palaces of Roman aristocrats, combine the melodic exuberance of the newly emerging "bel canto" style with the dramatic expressiveness characteristic of the age of Monteverdi. In spite of its importance during the 17th century, this music is little known today. None of the works on our program have been performed for a New York audience before.
