Samuel Marino

Sopranista (CD)

Decca Classics is thrilled to announce the signing of the sensational Venezuelan male soprano Samuel Mariño. Mariño will release his new album Sopranista (a term for male soprano) on 27 May. On the album, Mariño performs castrato, soprano and ‘trouser role’ arias from the 18th century. Arias by Gluck and Mozart, more commonly performed by female voices in the centuries since castration was banned, are recorded by a male soprano voice for the first time ever. Works by Joseph Bologne and Domenico Cimarosa are given world recording premieres.

Recorded with leading period instrument specialists Andrea Marcon and La Cetra Barockorchester Basel.
