Forces: soprano, violins & continuo
The never-ending search for Nice fills this virtuosic cantata. Lovely imagery including lions, tigers, waves and ships in RARA format. The first aria is full of pathos, calling for the nightingale, the second, following a recitativo accompagnato is fast and furious, a ‘navigante’ aria. with a range extending to high B flat, this is quite a piece of work!
