Albinoni's solo cantatas contain some of his most imaginative and skillfully written music. The twelve works in his virtually unknown opus 4, six for soprano and six for alto, are good specimens both of Albinoni's work in the domain of the solo cantata and of the genre in early eighteenth-century Italy.
Cantatas for Soprano and Basso Continuo
Amor, Sorte, Destino!
Del chiaro rio
Ove rivolgo il piede
Parti, mi lasci
Poiché al vago seren
Cantatas for Alto and Basso Continuo
Dall'arco d'un bel ciglio
Riedi a me
Filli, chiedi al mio core
Mi dà pena quando spira
So qual Tantalo novello
Chi non sa quanto inumano
