Very interesting collection of music performed by "castrati." CD comes with a booklet with chock-full biographies of famous castrati, as well as of the inhuman practice of castrating young men in the name of music--extremely interesting and informative. There is also a bunus CD with "Three Legendary Castrati Arias." As always, Bartoli delivers her fantastic voice and will certainly enrapture listeners.
Strong, exciting and athletic performance of dashing and passionate performance pieces.
Standouts are tracks 1,3, 7, 9 & 11 on the first disc and all three tracks on the bonus CD. Like a musical ice bucket over the head! Bracing.
