About the Author
Throughout his 20-year career as a counter-tenor, Nicholas Clapton has been particularly involved in performing the virtuoso repertoire of the castrati. A professor of Singing at the Royal Academy of Music, this biography of Moreschi, who he has already played on stage, was his first book. He followed this with this homage to his second home, Budapest, where he teaches at the Liszt Music Academy.
