Not all composers left the region of their birth to make a career for themselves in the major cultural centres of Europe. Italian composers who stayed in their home country include resonant names such as Albinoni, Scarlatti and Marcello along with others who have almost been forgotten, such as Leo, Fiorenza and Mancini. Most of their compositions are marked by a highly personal style and an extravagance that puts them outside the mainstream of Baroque music. Naples was a city with a flourishing musical scene and no less than four conservatories. The local archives still contain undiscovered musical gems today. RedHerring presents several little-known musical treasures from the period 1700-1750.
