MINECCIA ENSEMBLE ODYSSEE FRIGGI, FILIPPO MINECCIA
In this release Florentine countertenor Filippo Mineccia has constructed a compelling survey of arias written for the European stage by the colorful and much-travelled Attilio Ariosti. Mineccia has quickly become one of the exciting young talents reveling in the vocal demands called for from opera seria. Ariosti, a composer who has received little attention on record, was remarkably successful in his own time as he was one of the three leading composers at the Royal Academy alongside Handel and Giovanni Bononcini.
