Catalogue Number: 09Q032
Label: Brilliant Classics
Description: More ariettas from Crescentini (see 02O033 for the first disc containing some), the last of the truly famous castrati alongside some examples from the famous guitarist-composer Giuliani. For what it's worth, the traycard says that the Crescentini are "world premiere recording of original version" which may have to do with the voice-type (Amarres is also listed as "soprano sfogato"). Texts available on-line. Veronica Amarres (soprano), Sandro Volta (guitar).
