New Album

Gaetano Berenstadt (1687-1734), a native of Florence, sang in all the important opera houses in Italy and also for several years in London. Famous composers such as Bononcini, Hasse and Vinci appreciated him for his vocal and acting abilities. Handel was also a great admirer and gave him roles in Rinaldo, Ottone and Giulio Cesare, among others. Filippo Mineccia, also from Florence and one of today's leading countertenors, creates an impressive sounding portrait of the singer based on the stages of his career.
