GRAMOPHONE AWARD 2015 WINNER (RECITAL CATEGORY). A welcome return of Carolyn Sampson and Ex Cathedra to Hyperion, performing the rich, fulsome music of the French Baroque. Their recording of love songs from Rameau’s operas (Hyperion CDA67447) was hugely acclaimed for Sampson’s stylish, fluid, seductive performances, and ten years later her artistry is even more dazzling. This album is of particular interest as rather than concentrating on one composer it showcases the works written for the premiere soprano of the day, Marie Fel. Voltaire called her his ‘adorable nightingale’. For d’Aquin, she was an enchanted being. Marie Fel was the soprano who held an entire generation spellbound at the Paris Opéra and at Louis XV’s court during one of the most glorious periods of French music. With a voice described as ‘pure, charming, silvery’ (La Borde), ‘touching and sublime’ (Grimm) and ‘always lovely, always seductive’ (d’Aquin), she inspired some of Jean-Philippe Rameau’s finest music and introduced a whole new level of virtuosity and expression into the French singing tradition. Her long, triumphant career is traced through this fascinating recording.

Ave Sol is acknowledged as one of the most versatile and innovative choirs in the world. For over 45 years this ensemble has championed contemporary composers and performed the great choral repertoire to huge acclaim. The members come from all walks of life and are united by their intense love of music and the sheer joy of singing together. This unique album features many of the greatest opera arias and duets, but these immortal melodies have been given a unique twist in stunning new choral arrangements. For the first time these world famous pieces are performed not by great sopranos and tenors of our day, but by the dedicated members of the chorus; performers who ordinarily would never get to display their special affinity with this music.

The creator of the title roles of Handel's Rinaldo and Amadigi, Nicolò Grimaldi (Naples, 1673 Naples, 1732), known as Nicolini, was the leading castrato of his time, an outstanding artist praised as a fine actor as well as a singer. A generation older than Carlo Broschi (Farinelli),Gaetano Majorano (Caffarelli) and Giovanni Carestini, he possessed exceptional vocal agility and virtuosity, contributing significantly to the establishment of the legend of the castratos virtuosity.

The program on this release by baritone Matthew Rose is innovative and useful in a couple of different ways. First, although performers have sometimes tried to bring 18th century opera to life by programming arias written for specific singers, this has usually been applied to countertenors. They were generally the stars, it's true, but they weren't the only ones. The Italian comic baritone Francesco Benucci was one of the leads of Joseph II's Italian opera company, the original Figaro, and the original Leporello in Don Giovanni in the Vienna premiere (the second production).

Nicolò Grimaldi (1673-1732) war einer der gefeiertesten Kastraten der Generation vor Farinelli. Für ihn kreierte Händel beispielsweise die Titelpartien seiner Londoner Erfolgsopern Rinaldo und Amadigi. Der junge Countertenor Carlo Vistoli spürt hier, begleitet von Talenti Vulcanici unter Stefano Demicheli, den verschiedenen Stationen der Karriere dieses barocken Superstars nach.
