Godi, bell’ alma, from La Griselda (string quartet)


Title: Godi, bell’ alma, from the opera La Griselda

Composer: Allesandro Scarlatti, arr. David Gable

Instrumentation: Violin 1; Violin 2; Viola; Cello

Printout: 8 pages

Note: Allesandro Scarlatti was one of the most important opera composers of the Italian baroque, and La Griselda is arguably one of  his best works. This aria, with obligato unison violins paired with soprano solo, adapts beautifully for string quartet. In this arrangement, violin 1 plays the obligato, violin 2 carries the soprano part, and viola and cello fill out the basso continuo.
