L’Arpeggiata reconstructs the piece (via varied instrumentation and “orchestration“) in a way that allows one to truly appreciate the immense freedom we have as historically-informed performers. When all one has in a score is two voice parts and a basso continuo line (as in this case), one’s imagination is invited to run wild to create a coherent and rhetorically-informed musical performance of the piece, calling equally on both composer and performer to co-create a cohesive interpretation of a text and its musical portrayal.
