Just a quickmquestiuon whilst we have the attention of so many classical music fans...

Any body heard of a recording of a piece by Domenico Scarletti called "Il Contese id Stagioni" (The Battle of the Seasons)? It's a "semi-opera" which hw wrote when he was young and before he got into the harpsichord etc stuff he is now most famous for. It's similar to what his father Alessandro was writing at the time.

I've been through many a catalogue since I first heard it twenty odd years ago, in live concert broadcast by the EBU from somewhere in Geermany I think - all to no avail.

Other passions - 17th Century Italian Violin music - Marini, Farini, Gabrielli et al - any one heard the Devil's Trill?
