It can be truly said of Adelaide di Borgogna that, like a rose, it bloomed but a day - l’espace d’un matin.” First performed in Rome on the 27th December 1817, it enjoyed very few revivals. In 2011 the Rossini Festival in Pesaro presented the second staged performance of Adelaide di Borgogna since 1825. The story of the opera was taken from a historical event that took place in the medieval period, marking the end of an independent Italian kingdom and leading to the birth of the German Holy Roman Empire through the efforts of Otto I of Saxony. Caught between political rivalry and the love of two men, Adelaide of Burgundy struggles to fight for her people and chooses Otto, the better ruler, for herself and her kingdom.

Countertenor performances of 19th century opera are a historical and, ultimately, true novelty. This said, for those who love the sound of the countertenor voice and want to give it a try, there are several factors that recommend this release by countertenor Franco Fagioli, with the small orchestra Armonia Atenea under George Petrou. First is that castrati were still around in Rossini's time, although on the decline, and the composer was reportedly intrigued by their voices. Second, Fagioli, unlike the vast majority of other countertenors, studied bel canto singing rather than Baroque repertory exclusively, and a certain distance present in the work of other countertenors is absent here. And third, and most important, is Fagioli's voice itself. Of the countertenors active today, he's the one with the range, the power, the attitude to make you suspend disbelief and think for a moment that you're actually listening to a castrato. He enters into the various Rossini roles represented on this recording, several of which were mezzo-soprano "pants" roles; this adds to the layers of identity-switching happening, and the parts hit Fagioli's vocal sweet spot. A bonus is that several of these are from Rossini opere serie that are little played or recorded.

Curiously, Rossini has composed two roles for a castrato: to Alceo in the cantata Il vero omaggio, and that of Arsaces in Aureliano in Palmira, both for Giambattista Velluti, the last castrato internationally renowned opera . Against the Argentine tenor Franco Fagioli has deliberately given up these roles to this album Rossini, preferring to focus on transvestites roles that address sexual ambiguity from another angle. In operas "serious" by Rossini, rarely given today, there are many male characters whose roles were written for singers. Already, in the Baroque era, the role of the "primo uomo" could be entrusted to a woman if we did not have the proper castrato.

The Spanish soprano Nuria Rial and the countertenor Valer Sabadus are both stars of the booming Baroque music scene. Nuria Rial is a bright soprano with her “addictive timbre“ and Valer Sabadus' velvety "dramatic, crystal clear and lyric voice" (Süddeutsche Zeitung) are for the first time united in one recording.

L'attesissimo ritorno di Muriel Barbery, un romanzo sorprendente e commovente sul linguaggio misterioso della natura.
Maria vive in uno sperduto villaggio francese, in Borgogna, dove scopre di saper comunicare con la natura. A centinaia di chilometri di distanza, nelle campagne italiane, Clara scopre di possedere uno sbalorditivo genio musicale e viene mandata a Roma per sviluppare queste sue portentose abilità. La forza e la magia delle due ragazze uniscono così due mondi, quello elfico capace di cogliere e contemplare la bellezza e quello umano, in grado di crearla e all'occorrenza difenderla…
