Range Come raggio di sol

Come raggio di sol, a setting by unknown poet, was composed by Antonio Caldara (G Major) and published in the collection of Arie Antiche between 1885 and 1898. It is part of the first volume of the Arie Antiche collection.

If the vocal works of Caldara are rarely performed today, he is deemed to be one of the most influential Italian composer of the 17th century. We do not know in what context, nor at what time of his life, did Antonio Caldara write his song, Come raggio di sol. It seems that this aria was never composed as part of an opera but was, instead, intended as a song, although future research may bring us to different conclusions.
It became famous after its publication in the Arie Antiche collection, printed in the late 19th century.

The song, sets a poem which explains that behind smiles and signs of joy, can be deep sorrow and anguish. Caldara underlines the secreted sadness with the use of the G minor tonality and an aching, quaver pulse, at the piano accompaniment. The melody, at the vocal line, seems filled with throbbing and everlasting melancholy.
