Notes and Editorial Reviews

Niccolò Jommelli’s (1714-74) surviving chamber cantatas for solo voice constitute only a fraction of his output. Virtually all these cantatas are intended for a solo soprano accompanied by an ensemble consisting of violins (primarily playing in unison), viola and basso continuo. Cuban-born soprano Yetzabel Arias Fernández has won prizes in singing competitions in Chimay, Naples and Rome and performed at important Festivals (and venues) in Europe with the most distinguished baroque ensembles and orchestras under Ton Koopman, Jordi Savall and Helmut Rilling, amongst others.
