Misc. Comments

Grove Music does not list a full opera named Temistocle in Alberti's work list, and says that his works include "numerous arias (some of which are settings of texts from Metastasio's Temistocle and L'Olimpiade) that may have originated as concert arias, contributions to pasticcios or arie di baule for individual singers." RISM lists only this excerpt, though there are 4 entries for it. Thus, this work seems to be a single aria only. As such, it is tagged as an aria, with the instrumentation given in RISM, and the page may have be be re-named to the aria name, if it turns out no other part of Temistocle was set by Alberti, or evidence turns up that it was indeed a concert aria.
