Notes & Reviews:

With Johann Adolph Hasse Reloaded (OC 830), Valer Sabadus became the shooting star amongst countertenors. In December 2013, he appeared in Mozart roles for the Styriarte. The Salzburg master wrote them for some of the greatest castrati of his time: Rauzzini, Consoli, Bedini. The young interpreter must therefore sing up into the heights of the soprano range; he succeeds in this wonderfully, as he also does in the exploration of profound feelings. With his mentor Michael Hofstetter is on the podium, his flawlessly beautiful singing is supported by the orchestra's pulsing Mozartian vitality.

His is a superbly beautiful voice, and his silken sound makes much of the arias. The orchestra and fairly slow tempos add to the musical beauty. Look for a recording of this by male soprano Michael Maniaci. He sings the same two Lucio Silla arias, duplicating Sesto's 'Deh, per questo istante solo' and adding 'Parto, ma tu ben mio'. He caps off the program with a spectacular, complete Exsultate, Jubilate. His is a brighter, precisely edged voice, and he sings with enthusiasm and personality. His accompaniments are by the Boston Baroque. They also perform the overtures to domeneo and La Clemenza (Telarc 31827, March/April 2010).
