22. Scarlatti, Le Violette from Pirro e Demetrio
"Dewy, scented, pretty violets, you are standing, shy, half hidden, among the leaves." Italian Baroque composer Alessandro Scarlatti certainly knows how to write an elegant tune, exemplified in this aria from his opera Pirro e Demetrio. The dainty accompaniment paints the perfect picture of the delicate flowers described in the text.
