In Search of Porpora FREE

Through recordings old and new, Roger Neill will explore bel canto singing in the early 18th century through the vocal lineage that runs from Porpora through two Manuel Garcias and Mathilde Marchesi to singers of recent times – Maria Callas and Joan Sutherland, Kiri Te Kanawa and Meryl Streep, plus a whole new generation of counter-tenors rediscovering the world of the castrati.
