Frequently asked questions and updated information about our activities

***

Castrato voices were popular in the seventeenth and eighteenth centuries, the golden era of Italian opera. Italian music made a significant impression on Mozart, who composed several operas in Italian with roles for castrato voices. There are no longer any castrato singers today, and roles intended for them are usually sung by women.

But here, we will get to hear the unparalleled countertenor Franco Fagioli in several Mozart arias and recitatives, including the beautiful and masterful Exsultate, jubilate. It would be difficult to come closer than this to the genuine vocal sound of a castrato. 

Between the Mozart arias, Kammerorchester Basel performs instrumental music by German-Swedish composer Joseph Martin Kraus, often referred to as the Mozart of Sweden. The two were born the same year and it is even possible that they met in Vienna, where they were both simultaneously active for a period of time.

The famed, award-winning Kammerorchester Basel’s concerts attempt to replicate the original and in many cases forgotten performance practise.
