5 editions published in 2009 in Italian and English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The?Sacrificium? project will tell the story of the castrati in all its complexity; its beauty, glamour, controversy and cruelty. The album focuses on the Neapolitan school, which produced superstar castrati including Farinelli and Caffarelli.?The age of the castrati? inspired some of the most virtuosic repertoire ever written for the human voice; elaborate coloratura showpieces and beautiful slow arias, written for the extraordinary vocal abilities of the leading castrati. Following the international success of Opera Proibita, Cecilia Bartoli uncovers more lost jewels of baroque music, with an album almost entirely composed of World Premiere recordings. For the first time since their record-breaking Vivaldi Album, Cecilia Bartoli is reunited with leading Italian period instrument ensemble Il Giardino Armonico and their director Giovanni Antonini

Violin concertos by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart( )

9 editions published in 2016 in No Linguistic content and Undetermined and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Mozart was not even fifteen years old when he began composing violin concertos that would serve as a backdrop at Salzburg receptions. An insatiable drive for independence would lead the young Konzertmeister to overtly challenge musical forms. He innovated with genres, humor, and frivolity, all of which can be heard in this delightful first collaboration between Isabelle Faust and the musicians of Il Giardino Armonico

Serpent & fire by Anna Prohaska( )

6 editions published in 2016 in 4 languages and held by 278 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schlange und Feuer ("Serpent & fire") beendeten die Leben zweier berühmter Frauen der Weltgeschichte: Kleopatra und Dido. Diesen beiden königlichen Heroinen der Barockoper leiht die junge Koloratursopranistin Anna Prohaska ihre Stimme. Bei Johann Adolf Hasse scheidet Kleopatra mit heroischen Hochleistungskoloraturen aus dem Leben, bei Georg Friedrich Händel inbrünstig-poetisch. Bei Daniele da Castrovillari haucht Kleopatra ergreifend ihr Leben aus, während sein Landsmann Antonio Sartorio eher das Kokette der Königin betont. Didos Selbstmord taugte für über 90 Opernvertonungen, von denen Prohaska Dido-Arien von Graupner, Hasse, Cavalli und natürlich von Purcell ausgewählt hat. Doch egal, wie die Protagonisten aus dem Leben scheiden, Prohaska kann jede Form überzeugend schön gestalten. Zusammen mit dem altgedienten Starensemble der Alten Musik, Giovanni Antonini und Il Giardino Armonico, ist ein sowohl konzeptionell als auch künstlerisch sehr überzeugendes Album entstanden
