The Accademia degli Arcadi - that pioneering literary circle established by a group of poets, composers, aristocrats and churchmen -- championed a return to classical and pastoral ideals. One of the group's keenest members was the Marquis Francesco Maria Ruspoli, Handel's patron in Rome, for whom this charming pastoral cantata was composed and who brings into focus the aesthetic background for this sixth and penultimate release in La Risonanza's acclaimed series of Handel's Italian Cantatas. In an engrossing liner-note essay by Carlo Vitali, the listener is introduced to the social and political context of the pastoral texts of Olinto, pastore arcade, the famous Duello amoroso, and Alpestre monte, the three cantatas which make up this CD.
