About

Following the success of 2013’s solo album 'Rokoko', 'Arie Napoletane' is a brand new solo album for Decca’s prolific countertenor Max Emanuel Cencic. With repertoire not dissimilar to that on Cecilia Bartoli’s groundbreaking ‘Sacrificium’ album, Cencic sings arias by Porpora, Vinci and their contemporaries, written for the superbly talented castrati of the day.

Focusing on the musically rich city of Naples during the Baroque period, this album, typical of Cencic’s highly-regarded musical curiosity, contains a majority of world premiere recordings – ten works in total. Just as 'Rokoko' contained an extra addition in the form of Hasse’s 'Concerto for Mandolin', 'Arie Napoletane' includes Auletta’s Concerto in D major for harpsichord, two violins and continuo played by the dynamic Maxim Emelyanychev.

A feast of baroque discoveries, riding the wave of enthusiasm for the countertenor voice, this album is a first-rate showcase for the talents of Max Emanuel Cencic, fast becoming one of the most recorded countertenors of our time – a must-buy for countertenor and baroque discovery fans alike.
