Audio CD (December 6, 2019)

Renowned for portraying the music of the Baroque, Cecilia Bartoli presents her new recording of arias famously performed by legendary castrato Farinelli.

Exploring the complex gender roles of the world of baroque opera, and
highlighting the phenomenon of the castrati, Farinelli features works by Farinelli’s brother, Riccardo Broschi, and his mentor, Nicola Porpora, as well as Hasse, Caldara, and Giacomelli; including two world premiere recordings from Porpora’s Polifemo and Broschi’s La Merope.

History

Music Notes

Most Western music is based on a system of notation that evolved around 1600 out of earlier practices. The starting point for any opera is the full score, which contains all individual voices and instruments arranged in a specific order on the page. The written music—representing the sounds a composer creates in his head—then comes to life performed by singers onstage and played by the orchestra.
