The countertenor Randall Scotting's debut album on Signum Records - with Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, conducted by Laurence Cummings - explores repertoire composed for the (in)famous countertenor Senesino, featuring works by composers including Ariosti, Oralandini, Giocomelli and Gaj.

Has become a sought-after artist by some of the world's most esteemed opera houses. Recent performances include the Royal Opera House the Metropolitan Opera and the Thtre des Champs-Elyses. A distinctive ensemble playing on period-specific instruments, The Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment's values are to question, challenge and trailblaze. They have worked with conductors including Elder, Rattle, Jurowski, Ivn Fischer and John Butt. There's no orchestra quite like this one.
