COMPOSERS: Mozart,Salieri
LABELS: Campion Cameo
WORKS: Exsultate jubilate, K165; Fremat Thyrannus
PERFORMER: Arno Raunig (male soprano) Wien-Landstrasse Chamber Choir, Amadeus Ensemble Vienna/Walter Kobera
We have many superb male altos and countertenors nowadays. But the singing of sopranist Arno Raunig in this splendid, well-chosen recital of castrato arias and motets is so impressive for power, soprano brilliance and vocal flexibility (thanks to his quick vibrato) that one is tempted to request a medical certificate to guarantee that he is not a genuine castrato.
