Abstract in another language

The cantata is one of the longest compositions in the repertoire for the Prince. It consists of fourteen text sections, opening with an instrumental sinfonia and concluding with a duet by the two protagonists Clori and Tirsi. A survey of the texts that Caldara set to music for Ruspoli between 1709 and 1716 immediately reveals their clear orientation towards the Arcadian-pastoral theme. Ruspoli, himself a member of the Accademia dell’Arcadia, thus placed himself ostentatiously in the tradition of this influential literary academy, and offered its members a weekly stage for years with the conversazioni in front of a Roman and international audience. Some academy colleagues were responsible for the textual basis of Caldara’s compositions; nevertheless, a clear attribution of the texts to an author is only possible in exceptional cases.
