"Sopranista" is the name of the debut album of the sensational Venezuelan soprano singer Samuel Mariño. Arias by Gluck and Mozart, which in the last centuries were sung only by female voices, can be heard here for the first time by a male soprano voice. Mariño's unique voice and authentic personality open up a world of possibilities to reinterpret well-known repertoire, but also to bring the unknown to light - among other things, Mariño presents world premiere recordings of arias from Joseph Bologna's "L'Amant Anonyme" and Domenico Cimarosa's "Oreste" on his album. "If I want to sing a role and I can, I sing it. It's not about whether it's a man or a woman or a castrato," says the young soprano singer, who has signed an exclusive contract with Decca Classics. He recorded his debut album with the La Cetra Baroque Orchestra Basel, conducted by Andrea Marcon.
