'Wretched and alone with my pain and torment' is the start of this RARA format cantata by the Neapolitan composer and teacher Nicola Fago. Cupid is up to his old tricks again! Full of chromatic inflections and wandering tonality and offering a wonderful emotional challenge to the performer.

Cantata à voce sola di basso
£4.95
Fago: Come viver poss'io
Forces: soprano & continuo

'How can I live far from that lovely face?' asks our protagonist. Not far it would seem as Cupid burns him with desire and '...lights up his heart with a devouring flame' in this effective lotananza cantata. RARA format with very expressive recitatives and two really enjoyable arias.

Fago's cantatas are an interesting bridge between the Scarlattian style and the later Neapolitan version of the genre. Here a shepherd falls prey to the 'vicious' Goddess of Love.

Fago: Forz'è pur nel proprio sangue

The wonderful lament in Part II of Fago's oratorio Faraone Sommerso - worthy competition to Porpora's Alto Giove. Amazing performance by Europa Galante on YouTube. The character Messo bewails the fate of the Jewish people being pursued by Pharoah and warns how the waves will wash away the anger and blood. 5-part string accompaniment.
