Iestyn Davies - Arias for Guadagni (Autographed)
Release date: June, 2012
Total duration: 77 minutes 52 seconds

British countertenor Iestyn Davies is one of the fastest rising stars on the concert and opera circuit. Following his highly acclaimed recording of Porpora cantatas, he returns for a second solo album with Hyperion, a selection of arias written for Gaetano Guadagni. Italian-born Guadagni was the first 'modern' castrato, famed all over Europe for the lyric purity of his voice and his powerful, naturalistic acting style.

“Through his effortless line, countertenor Iestyn Davies revivifies Guadagni's Orphic powers. He is particularly breathtaking in works by Handel, Arne and John C Smith, all of which were designed to show off the castrato's pellucid timbre . A refreshingly ambitious and superbly realised recording” - BBC Music Magazine

Be sure to come see Iestyn Davies as Trinculo in "The Tempest" this season here at the Metropolitan Opera.
