Fantastic and beautiful rendition!. Bravo . Franco Fagioli countertenor "Torbido in volto e nero" (prince Farnaspe aria), Adriano in Siria (opera seria in three acts), by G.B. Pergolesi. Farnaspe's aria written for great Caffarelli mezzo-soprano castrato singer (Gaetano Majorano formed by N. Porpora). Premiere 1734 of Pergolesi's Naples with Pietro Metastasio libretto. "Torbido in volto e nero" one of the difficult and most beautiful baroque opera arias ever written. (..extracted fragments and united conforming as only a sample to show in this video) Enjoy , ..(disfruten) this beauty.

"Torbido in volto e nero" aria ( Caffarelli playing role prince Farnaspe 1734 )

Torbido in volto e nero,
senza che tuoni il cielo,
tacito e gonfio appare
senza alcun vento il mare,
e in petto al passeggero
il cor fa palpitar.
In quell'orrore ascoso
il turbine s'appresta;
è quel silenzio un segno
di prossima tempesta,
che van destando i venti
racchiusi in seno al mar.
