Franco Fagioli
A Handpicked Selection Of Handel Opera Arias From Franco Fagioli, One Of The Most Outstanding Countertenors Today!

This is the album Handel lovers have been waiting for: a handpicked selection of Handel opera arias that Franco Fagioli, one of the most outstanding countertenors today, has chosen himself.

Handel is unavoidably linked to Franco’s career and he brings a unique approach to the composer in this studio recording.

Franco has gained critical acclaim for his round, sensual and velvet mezzosoprano like voice, and he is known to sing with virtuosic coloratura and emotional intensity.

He performs fourteen arias whilst exploring the wide range of emotions and affetti musicali that are typical of Baroque operas and of Handel’s vocal music in particular.

This album is also a happy re-encounter of a winning team: Franco is joined by the famous orchestra Il pomo d'oro, a dynamic Baroque orchestra with whom Franco has worked with in the past.
