Baroque Aria has been launched to offer arias from Baroque operas, serenatas, dramme per musiche and cantatas which were much fêted in their day and still stand today as excellent examples of the genre. You can preview, audition and purchase music, much of which is not available in any other place. Composers such as Handel and Porpora, Giacomelli and Mancini (with occasional forays into the work of composers both earlier and later).
Select the music you’d like to view and suggest music you would like to see available on the site. We have access to some of the greatest collections of manuscripts in the world, both autograph copies of whole operas and excellent contemporary collections of arias by a vast range of composers. Take advantage of this and the music and articles available.
If you have a transcription you’d like to add to the collection, please sign-up and add your work.
All are welcome at Baroque Aria! Please enjoy the site and come back regularly to check on our newest additions, or join our mailing list below:
