#farinellispaths

#farinellispaths is new biennial project dedicated by Stile Galante to the castrato singer Carlo Broschi (1705-1782), aka Farinelli. The project includes the complete recording of an extremely important manuscript source, concerts, two international musicological conferences (Vienna and Naples), video tutorials, an exhibition (Bologna), lectures, etc., with events in the Netherlands, Italy, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, USA, to better understand the role of Farinelli in Music History and debunk many of the fairytales associated with his story and artistry. The following calendar is constantly updated.
