In this Deutsche Harm Mundi CD,  Genauxas  sound so beautiful a shake as she pays tribute to one of the great icons of the 18th Century’s operatic world, the legendary Faustina Bordoni. Mezzo-soprano Faustina Bordoni was considered to be one of the greatest singers of the first half of the C18th, entrancing audiences in Italy and throughout Europe and commanding huge fees.
