Scarlatti Duo
Trumpet and Soprano appears to be a radical pairing. The trumpet is associated with Military, Religious and Regal splendour and for that to be blended with any form of quieter instrument or voice seems absurd. In the Baroque era it was discovered that by playing in the high register of the trumpet it was possible to match the softer sound of the human voice.
Composers such as Bach, Handel, Purcell, Scarlatti and Vivaldi all used this combination with great success, in repertoire spanning Opera Arias, Cantata's, Birthday Odes and Entr'actes.
