In the Holy Year 1725, flautist Johann Joachim Quantz went to Naples to meet Alessandro Scarlatti. The latter composed a few sonatas for the German virtuoso before dying a few months later, leaving behind him a generation of younger composers who quickly became established as the leading figures of a genuine "Neapolitan School". Domenico Sarro, a musician from Apuglia who composed many works for the Neapolitan theatres, was one of Scarlatti's successors. He was mainly known for his operas, but his production also includes a few instrumental works such as the Flute Concerto in A minor that appears in a collection of 24 concertos produced by different composers. Santino Cara reconstructed in 2009 this rarity in the flute repertoire on the base of the manuscript, which is kept in the library of the Conservatory S. Pietro a Majella in Naples.
