Countertenor Raffaele is gaining significant recognition among the young Italian artists of the baroque scene. Acclaimed for the pureness and beauty of his voice, he performs and records regularly with many leading conductors. Following on from his album Bella Dama (recording of the month, November 2012 – Music Web Int’l), ‘The Medici Castrato: An Homage to Gualberto Magli’ pays tribute to this early 17th c. singer greatly favored by the Medici family, to whom he was to remain bound for the rest of his artistic life.
