Arias For Nicolino Carlo Vistoli Arcana

ARIAS FOR NICOLINO Handel, Pergolesi, Sarro, Scarlatti

Carlo Vistoli, countertenor
I Talenti Vulcanici / Stefano Demicheli

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 young Italian countertenor and rising star of Baroque opera Carlo Vistoli offers us a perfect picture of him in this anthology retracing the key moments of his career, including extracts from Handel's operas but also, among others, from Giovanni Battista Pergolesi's first opera, Salustia, which Nicolino would have sung at Naples had he not fallen ill and died during the rehearsals.
He is accompanied by Talenti Vulcanici (the newly formed resident ensemble of the Centro di Musica Antica - Fondazione Pietà de' Turchini di Napoli), here galvanised by its harpsichordist and principal conductor Stefano Demicheli, a familiar name on the Fuga Libera label, on which he released three successful recordings with his own ensemble Dolce & Tempesta. This album marks the beginning of a new series dedicated to Neapolitan music, in collaboration with the Neapolitan Foundation.
