. . . the disc's highlight is countertenor Bejun Mehta's poignant and beautifully controlled reading of Porpora's aria "Alto Giove" from "Polifemo" -- Neapolitan opera at its most exquisitely lyrical. Concerto Köln, under the dynamic baton of Pablo Heras-Casado, offers . . . taut and spirited playing . . .

. . . the individual numbers are terrific, the conducting flamboyant and the playing punchy and suave . . . [Poropora / "Alto Giove"]: Bejun Mehta is ravishing . . .

. . . Pablo Heras-Casado entzündet bei alter, neuer und romantischer Musik spanisches Feuer . . . [eine] fulminante CD . . . Concerto Köln spielt diese Musik auf Nachbauten alter Instrumente gepfeffert und mit Extra-Paprika wie eine mallorquinische Chorizo. Die Fandangos und Seguidillas versetzen einen in allerbeste Sommerstimmung . . . [dann ist da noch das rauschende Kastagnetten-Duett "Vendado amor es, no ciego" von José de Nebra, das der Counter Bejun Mehta] mit sich selbst singt: Wer da nicht unverzüglich in beste Laune verfällt, dem ist nicht zu helfen.

    Pablo Heras-Casado, "one of the most exciting conductors of his generation" (Die Welt), makes his Archiv Produktion 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 with works of Baroque composers like Hasse, Porpora and Jomelli represents a fine selection of pieces and features eight world premier recordings, including some arias sung by Bejun Mehta, "the best countertenor in the world" (Süddeutsche Zeitung).
