Martha Argerich playing Scarlatti

I recently came across a performance in which she played a Scarlatti sonata as an encore.




Please start listening from 30:00 in.
She left me breathless!

Re: Castrato voice

Thanks for all the comments. Very enlightening.

By the way, in the film "Farinelli", the castrato was depicted as having a man's voice when he spoke.

Castrato voice

I know that, in the old days, castrati were able to retain their high voice after reaching puberty.

However, when they SPOKE, did they also speak with a boy's voice (like a woman's)?

Just curious.
