Notes and Editorial Reviews

Dirindina by Scarlatti and Pimpinone by Albinoni are two “intermezzi buffi”, which were placed in the intervals of the opera seria. Pimpinone, an intermezzo in three parts, was performed for the first time in Venice in 1708 inside the opera seria Astarto by Albinoni himself. The work was immediately a great success and was repeated many times in Italy and abroad. Dirindina was composed seven years later in 1715, by Domenico Scarlatti, son of Alessandro. Both intermezzi were filmed in high definition with 16:9 aspect ratio and stereo PCM sound.
