Pablo Heras-Casado makes his conducting debut performing instrumental and vocal music associated with Farinelli, the legendary 18th-century castrato who served as impresario and court musician to the kings of Spain.This new album contains works by Baroque composers and features eight world premier recordings, including some arias sung by Bejun Mehta, “the best countertenor in the world” (Süddeutsche Zeitung)As well as being a world class conductor, Heras-Casado prides himself on being fluent in Spanish, English, Italian & French.
“The disc’s selling-point is the Spanish inflection to the well-known idiom, as in a stampy fandango by Nebra and a jaunty dance by Francesco Corradini; there is a pleasing vivacity to everything, alongside Iberian rhythms and instrumentation...Heras-Casado clearly feels strongly about this stuff and gets punctilious performances from Concerto Köln.” Opera Now
