For his new aria recital for Pan Classics, countertenor Filippo Mineccia teams up with the young Spanish ensemble, Nereydas, directed by Javier Ulises Illán. The repertoire, a selection of arias for alto by Niccolò Jommelli, aims at making clear the importance of this composer in the history of Italian opera, and especially in the early days of Classicism. It is bright, delicate and sensitive music, combining, in the word of scholar Marita P. McClymonds, “German complexity, French decorative elements and Italian brio, welded together by an extraordinary gift for dramatic effectiveness”. This CD demonstrates a command of vocal writing, as found equally in the composer’s operas and oratorios, and a new showcase for Filippo Mineccia’s breathtaking vocal abilities; already among the leading countertenors of our time.

Sunday Times

27th November 2016

“the standout is Se mai senti spirarti sul volto, from Jommelli’s La clemenza di Tito of 1771: expressive, spacious yet concentrated, with singing to match. But everything impresses, including the suave, exciting playing of the Spanish group Nereydas.”

Opera Now

January 2017


“Mineccia sings with the early music ensemble Nereydas, conducted by Javier Ulises Illán, and together they explore Jommelli’s rich orchestral textures and colours with obvious delight”

Gramophone Magazine

January 2017

“Filippo Mineccia is a visceral performer for whom dramatic characterisation seems to be paramount, while the range of musical moods provides some scope for versatile and astute musicianship…the small band Nereydas play turbulent stormy effects with brio”
