Sinfonia from the opera Gl' Amanti Generosi
Francesco Mancini’s sinfonia was known in London, for his opera was produced there under the title Hydaspes in 1710; it seems that the composer – a Neapolitan – worked in England for a period. The sinfonia is typical of the simple, vigorous orchestral style popularized by Alessandro Scarlatti; the scoring, though, with solo violins as well as solo trumpet in the first movement, is quite sophisticated.
