Celebrating over three decades on the Decca Classics label, mezzo-soprano Cecilia Bartoli releases a brand new album commemorating the life and career of the most famous opera singer of the 18th century: the castrato Farinelli. Set to release on November 29, the record includes arias by Farinelli's older brother Riccardo Broschi and his teacher and mentor Nicola Porpora. It also features a new recording of "Alto Giove" from Porpora's Polifemo, which celebrates Farinelli's unique capacity to sing long musical phrases and extraordinary high notes. Cecilia performs with the period ensemble Il Giardino Armonico and its conductor Giovanni Antonini, with whom she first collaborated on her Grammy Award-winning Vivaldi album, and again on Sacrificium, her first castrati album from 2009, which also won a Grammy for Best Classical Vocal Performance.
