Caffarelli was renowned for both his extravagance and his extraordinary vocal skills. Recorded here for the first time, those extremely virtuoso arias by the most famous Neapolitan composers of that time were waiting to find a voice able to give them a new life. The full-colour 76-page booklet includes essays and pictures about eighteenth-century musical life in Naples, Caffarelli and Farinelli.
