Emblazoned on the title page of many an 18th-century Italian opera libretto, “dramma per musica” soon became the name for the operas composed to those words. The name perfectly evokes the fury of passions which the masterpieces of the period captured with such power.

This collection of astonishing discoveries – many of them heard here in world-premiere recordings – brings together some of the most magnificent arias of the genre. All of them place such huge demands on the singer’s abilities that only the world’s most legendary castratos such as Farinelli and Caffarelli were considered able to do them justice.

Composer: Giuseppe De Majo, Nicolo Porpora, Leonardo Leo, Johann Adolf Hasse, …
Performer: Simone Kermes
Orchestra/Ensemble: La Magnifica Comunità

Reviews: Eight of the 12 songs are world premiere recordings of unaccountably beautiful arias such as Nicola Antonio Porpora’s “ Tace l’augello”, interspersed with more familiar pieces by Handel and Pergolesi. Simone Kermes treats these first airings with due care, exhibiting stately grace and poise on Porpora’s “Alto Giove”, and coping remarkably with the wide range and rapid coloratura passages of material often written for castrati, notably Giuseppe De Majo’s “Per trionfar pugnando”.
