Samuel Mariño with debut album “Care Pupille”
“Care Pupille – The London Concert, 1746” is the title of the debut album of the young soprano Samuel Mariño. The album retraces a historical concert evening that took place at London's Haymarket and features works by two of the most influential composers of the 18th century: George Frideric Handel, who was already an institution at the time, and Christoph Willibald Gluck, whose time as the great reformer of opera was yet to come .The selection of arias also includes three world premiere recordings. The album is based on a concert performed at the International Handel Festival in Halle. The Halle Handel Festival Orchestra performing on period instruments is conducted by Michael Hofstetter.
The Venezuelan-born and Berlin-based male soprano, Samuel Mariño, captivates his audience with his unique natural voice that radiates even in the highest registers. Educated in Caracas and Paris, the singer has already made numerous appearances as a soloist in Europe. In June 2017 he won the Interpretation Prize at the International Singing Competition of the Opéra de Marseille. In the same year in Germany he was awarded the Audience Prize at the “Neue Stimmen” International Singing Competition in Gütersloh. The music world took notice of him in 2018 when he performed Alessandro in the opera “Berenice” at the Handel Festival in Halle. The magazine “Opernwelt” subsequently made several references to him as “Best emerging young artist”. At this year's Handel Festival 2020 he was scheduled to return to Halle as Teseo in the opera bearing the same name.
