Notes and Editorial Reviews



Following the success of 2013’s solo album ROKOKO, Arie Napoletane is a brand new solo album for Decca’s prolific countertenor, Max Emanuel Cencic. With repertoire not dissimilar to that on Cecilia Bartoli’s groundbreaking ‘Sacrificium’ album, Cencic sings arias by Porpora, Vinci and their contemporaries written for the superbly talented castrati of the day. Focusing on the musically rich city of Naples during the Baroque period, this album contains TEN world premiere recordings.
