Last seen in the UK duetting with Cecilia Bartoli, Argentinian counter-tenor Fagioli scintillates in this beautifully sung, played, programmed, and packaged recording of arias written for the 18th-century castrato superstar Gaetano Caffarelli.

Naples is the destination, a place of outrageous operatic showmanship, and violinist Riccardo Minasi directs a vivacious performance from Il Pomo d’oro while Fagioli displays outstanding technique and alluring tone.
