El Maestro Farinelli

Bejun Mehta makes a cameo appearance on Pablo Heras-Casado’s first Deutsche Grammophon/Archiv Produktion album, titled El Maestro Farinelli (pre-order your copy and see the complete track listing here).

This recording features vocal and instrumental music associated with Farinelli, a celebrated 18th century castrato singer, and one of the most well-known opera singers of all time. On this album, Mr. Mehta sings the aria Farinelli was most famous for performing in his lifetime, Alto Giove, è tua grazia by composer Nicola Porpora.

Maestro Heras-Casado leads the Concerto Köln on this landmark recording, and the album trailer can be seen here, featuring an appearance by Mr. Mehta.
