Stile Galante baroque orchestra, conducted by Stefano Aresi, and Ann Hallenberg are going to record a new CD featuring original cadenzas from one of the most famous, celebrated and important castrato singers of Mozart's age.
After many years of painstaking reseach, Stefano Aresi has compiled the most extended collection ever found of original embellishments, da capos, cadenzas, variations connected to a single castrato's repertoire.
The castrato, whose name is yet to be announced, was one of the most famous, celebrated and important castrato singers of Mozart's age.
Ann and Stefano plan to produce a CD to showcase the sensational discoveries, and also to create a 50 minute documentary to describe in detail the significance of the haul of information they have gathered.
