Antonio Maria Bononcini (1677 - 1726) is the younger and lesser-known brother of Giovanni Bononcini (1670 - 1747). He was one of a number of Italian composers who were active at the imperial court in Vienna, and introduced the newest trends in Italian music to the Austrian capital. His brother also did belong to this group of composers, as well as Ziani and Ariosti. The chamber cantata was one of the genres these composers paid attention to as listening to cantatas was part of the entertainment at the court.
It took Antonio quite some time to escape from the shadow of his brother who made special impression with his operas, one of the famous of them being Polifemo, first performed in 1702 in Berlin, where several composers at the Habsburg court were staying during the War of the Spanish Succession. Antonio devoted many of his compositions to emperor Joseph's brother Charles, who lived in Barcelona as he claimed the Spanish throne, which suggests he acted as Kapellmeister to Charles. When Joseph died in 1713, Charles succeeded him as Emperor Charles VI. What perhaps was expected, didn't happen: neither Giovanni nor Antonio received any appointment at the court. For Antonio this turned out to be a blessing in disguise, as it helped him to come out of the shadow of his brother. He developed into a composer of operas in his own right. In 1721 he was appointed as maestro di cappella at Modena, where he stayed until his death.
Antonio Bononcini composed 13 chamber cantatas for the Viennese court. They all follow the traditional pattern of a sequence of recitatives and da capo arias, although in Vorrei pupille belle the structure is a little different. Unlike the other cantatas it opens with an aria, which is immediately followed by a second one. The first aria is unusual anyway as the B section is a recitative. Remarkable is the fact that most arias in Bononcini's cantatas are pretty long, longer than usual in cantatas of this kind.
Another feature of Bononcini's cantatas is the scoring: all cantatas contain obbligato instrumental parts. Three of the cantatas recorded here have two violin parts, the remaining one has two parts for recorders. This was rather uncommon, as most composers at the Viennese court only seldom incororated melody instruments in their cantatas.
