About

Following 'Arias for Caffarelli', a major hit for naïve, this new recording from Franco Fagioli offers 12 opera arias by Nicola Porpora, who was both a composer and the teacher of Caffarelli and Farinelli, among many others.

Franco, through his amazing technique and breath-taking emotional power, pays tribute to the original and refined vocal art nurtured by Porpora in the framework of Naples in the 18th century. The recording features hits such as Polifemo’s 'Alto Giove' but also lesser-known scores, all performed with baroque specialists Academia Montis Regalis, conducted by Alessandro de Marchi.

Buon giorno Maestro! this is what I like to imagine at any moment when I start a new session studying one of his arias, like trying to take a singing lesson from him in each of his arias. Nicola Porpora, Il Maestro de cantanti, the teacher of singers; teacher of lots of them like Senesino, Caffarelli, Farinelli. I like to feel also as a pupil of him...To learn by singing his arias, what a joy, and what a challenge! His special way of writing, full of trills, long passages of coloraturas, endless long phrases in melancholic arias... What an honour to sing your music. What an honour to feel in my body the music you wrote. Thank you! See you in the next lesson! Grazie maestro!” - Franco Fagioli
