For the first time, three arias from Scarlatti’s 1698 Il prigioniero forunato are available as performed by mezzo-soprano Teresa Berganzi and pianist Félix Lavilla in their 1975 recital. The arias were transcribed directly from this recording, so are presented in an exquisite 20th century setting, breaking beyond the 17th century stylistic and harmonic conventions. The arranger of these settings is unknown.
