The composers of the 17th and 18th century experimented with the human voice, using it as the absolute musical instrument and coming up with compositions for it that reach or even exceed its limitations.
The baroque era could be characterised as the first era to create the “star system”. On the one hand the castrati Senesino, Caffarelli or Farinelli, and, on the other hand, female voices such as Cuzzoni, Bordoni, Clive or Durastanti, who exalted the human instrument, while creating the first musical idols through their personal lives and rivalries. They lived and performed excessively and dangerously, walking the tightrope of a Baroque Extravaganza.
