Rivals’ - David Hansen’s debut recording for SONY / DHM explores and celebrates the music of Farinelli and his castrato rivals: Caffarelli, Carestini, Bernacchi and others. These singers dominated the stages of Europe and it was not always Farinelli who reigned supreme… David Hansen’s album features nine world premiere recordings. He is accompanied by Alessandro de Marchi and his orchestra Academia Montis Regalis. Recorded at the famous Academia at Mondovì in Piemont with Alessandro de Marchi and the musicians of the prestigious Academia Montis Regalis, the choice of arias demonstrates the remarkable breadth of David Hansen’s phenomenal technique, his musical versatility and expression.
