On his new album, entitled Sopranista (meaning male soprano), Samuel Mariño sings music that dates back to a time when gender norms in opera were in many ways more nuanced and fluid. Here Mariño performs arias written for the celebrated male “castrato” singers from the days of Mozart and Gluck, which have largely been sung by female voices in the centuries since castration was banned. The album opens with the famous Cherubino aria from Mozart’s The Marriage of Figaro, with deliberate gender-blurring themes, in which a female singer sings the role of a boy. Many of these pieces have never been recorded by a male soprano until now. Mariño has been contacted by a number of musicologists eager for him to try his hand at arias written for male sopranos that had been neglected for centuries. On his debut Decca album Mariño gives works written in the 1780s, by Joseph Bologne and Domenico Cimarosa, their world recording premieres.

What is High-Resolution Audio?

High-resolution audio offers the highest-fidelity available, far surpassing the sound quality of traditional CDs. When you listen to music on a CD or tracks purchased via consumer services such as iTunes, you are hearing a low-resolution version of what was actually recorded and mastered in the studio. ProStudioMasters offers the original studio masters — exactly as the artist, producers and sound engineers mastered them — for download, directly to you.

What do I need for playback?

You may need additional software / hardware to take full advantage of the higher 24-bit high-res audio formats, but any music lover that has heard 16-bit vs 24-bit will tell you it's worth it!
