The 18th century Italian comic intermezzo, originally inserted between the acts of serious operas, won enormous contemporary popularity. The present release includes an example of the form from the now largely neglected Neapolitan composer Domenico Sarri in which lovers quarrel and are re-united. Mirena e Floro was the work of two composers, Handel’s London rival Bononcini, and Gasparini, one of the leading Italian opera composers of the day. The plot again concerns the quarrels and reconciliation of lovers, who use various tricks and disguises to achieve their ends.
