Description: Since Porpora was instrumental in starting Farinelli's career, it is fitting that the French countertenor has chosen such an unhackneyed program of music by master for pupil: 7 are first recordings. Italian-English texts. Philippe Jaroussky (countertenor), Cecilia Bartoli (in two duets), Venice Baroque Orchestra; Andrea Marcon.
